“Rushing Back” has massive potential to be another bonafide hit for Flume.
When Flume released his mixtape Hi This is Flume, a lot of listeners were expecting songs like Flume’s most popular releases such as “Never Be Like You,” “Say It,” and “You & Me”. What they received was a more experimental, heavy-hitting side of Flume. Now Flume is giving the people what they want with “Rushing Back”.
The song begins with minor production elements, but you can clearly hear the emotion in Vera Blue’s voice. This simplified production soon rises and builds into a classic Flume drop, equipped with his signature synths, his “Flume snare”, and hard-hitting drums. It provides the perfect contrast to Vera Blue’s voice at the beginning. She comes back during the bridge with a new verse while the second drop is more of the same. It feels like a full-fledged song, something that Flume has done expertly well in the past.
Based on the first listen and fans reaction thus far, we’re sure Flume has another worldwide hit on his hands. It’s only a matter of time before this is played everywhere, including the radio!
