Listen: Flume and Kai, “Never Be Like You”

Flume and Kai have partnered to create a track that makes you want to run, dance, and cry. “Never Be Like You,” released on January 16, has emotive lyrics paired with drums and synthesized beats that are reminiscent of Flume’s earlier work.

“Never Be Like You” strikes an odd balance. It’s a highly emotional song, yet you can’t help but feel energized after listening. There’s something about Flume’s genius.

In a press release, Flume talked about working on this track with Kai, “We laid down some chords and started an idea but weren’t feeling inspired. So we went out into the night for a few hours and when we returned, it all started to come together.”

Flume’s new album, Skin is set to release later this year.
