‘Some Minds’ Is A Collaboration With Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt
This is not usually what we cover on Overblown, but we should really spread our wings and fly. Which is exactly what the new track from Australian producer Flume does. A collaboration with Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, it begins apprehensively before exploding into a powerful eagle at its denouement.
The video was directed by Clemens Habicht (Tame Impala, Bloc Party) and features cherography by Australian Ballet member Callum Linnane. It is the first music video recorded within the Sydney Opera House, and it is a beautiful and enchanting accompaniment to the preternatural and spellbinding song.
“On the first album I had only worked remotely with singers sending files back and forth over the internet. I still enjoy working remotely but have also done a bunch of sessions with people in person, “Flume said about the song. “Sometimes its quite odd, even uncomfortable as you have never met, writing music is a very personal process for me. The session for “Some Minds” with Andrew was one of the most natural I’ve done. He is a seasoned pro and it really opened me up to this way of working.”
While in regard to the music video he said, “The last four months has been the longest I’ve had at home in Sydney without being on the road touring and, while I love travelling, it’s nice to come home to such a beautiful place like Sydney. It was humbling to be able to make something in a building so iconic. Being inside the Sydney Opera House filming overnight with no one in the building, it was quite eerie, the place has so much character. The director Clemens [Habicht] really nailed what I wanted to achieve in getting a balance between the real and synthetic, he has a great eye… It’s our love letter to Sydney.”
