Is Flume the next AC/DC for Australia?

The rising wonderproducer in the EDM scene, Flume (aka Harley Straten), is doing Australia proud in the music industry. Not only has he received countless AIR and ARIA awards for his first platinum album self-titled Flume, he is also receiving a lot of attention across the globe with sell-out gigs for his Prism tour in Europe and the US. Flume has even managed to convince one of Britain’s biggest  music journalists, Phoebe Hurst, to move to Australia to get on board the next biggest hub in the music scene. She’s even identified him as being the next big thing in the Australian music scene since AC/DC and Natalie Imbruglia

Here’s an excerpt from her article on her decision to move to Australia after attending Flume’s prism tour in Britain, “But as the lights dimmed, I sensed that something potentially life-changing (or at least more life changing than the season six finale of Real Housewives of Orange County) was about to happen. A moist surge of bodies propelled me towards the infinity prism and Flume entered the stage. The front row went from polite to pit within seconds, LEDs flashed and, at the centre of it all, Harley Streten ducked the bass dives and ecstatically gurned out the peaks. In the midst of the euphoria, with the semi-pornographic visuals of ‘You and Me’ searing into my eyes, I finally admitted defeat: Australia might just have the coolest music scene in the world.”

Phoebe Hurst will soon be writing for pedestrian.tv and most likely, several of Australia’s biggest music magazines as well.
