Flume Taps Caroline Polachek For ‘Sirens’: Look + Listen

For Flume‘s new single, “Sirens,” the Australian deejay/producer/artist has retained the talented Caroline Polachek as the top line vocalist.

Co-written and produced by Danny L Harle, the high-flying electronic song, will appear on Flume’s forthcoming LP, Palaces, coming May 20 via Future Classic and Transgressive.

In a statement about his new collaboration, Flume (born Harley Edward Streten) said: “Caroline and I had known each other for years, but she’d just moved to L.A. and we bumped into each other living down the street.” “We started playing weekly games of Magic The Gathering with A.G. Cook and a few friends. We started doing a session, and Danny L Harle showed me a voice note from Caroline with some very early stages of vocals. I loved it and went back in on it during the pandemic.”

“I was living by myself in London, and it was the darkest time in the pandemic,” added Polachek. “I was really going through it, feeling so small, unable to control anything in the world, and the lyric ‘sirens’ was in reference to constant ambulances I was hearing.”

“Sirens” is the second song to be released from Palaces following last month’s “Say Nothing,” featuring MAY-A. The album will include additional collaborations – from Damon Albarn, Vergen Maria, Oklou and Kučka – and follows the Aussie producers’s 2019 mixtape, Hi This Is Flume, which earned him his second Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album.

Polacheck, recently shared a new solo single, “Billions” — a trip-hop inspired, hallucinogenic epic that finds the songwriter expanding upon the inventive production style perfected on her critically acclaimed 2019 album, Pang.

Flume will perform at Coachella in April, with appearances at Governor’s Ball and Bonnaroo set for later this summer.
