Despite touring all over North America and Europe this Summer, Flume’s new album is certainly under way. In a recent interview with Australian radio station Triple J, Flume talked a bit about the upcoming record. Here’s what he had to say about the different types of sounds he’s experimenting with:
“What I’ve been doing is I’ve been getting a lot of Hollywood sound effects libraries and cartoon sounds, sounds that humans have made up, and using those sounds in the music where they shouldn’t be used. Instead of claps, these days I’m using ice cracks, like an icicle cracking against a table, just weird things like that. Dropping glass jars of honey on the ground.”
He goes on to mention that a new What So Not EP is in the works and that you should be hearing new music from him “really soon.” Personally I couldn’t be more excited to hear what Flume, who is already known for being an innovative producer, will be able to come up with. He also states that if you’re in Sydney and going to Listen Out this weekend, expect to hear a lot of new material from Flume as he has been working in the studio ever since he got back to Australia. The rest of us will have to wait, though, pondering what this amazing artist has up his sleeve. You can listen to his entire interview with Triple J below.
