Today’s #MusicMonday is dedicated to last night’s stellar Wilderness festival headline performance from London Grammar. We all hung on in there through the rain and thunder storms to witness them close the festival in style. Well, the wait wasn’t so bad as it featured Chet Faker, Sam Smith and Jessie Ware so please don’t feel at all sorry for us!
Haunting, spine tingling and utterly beautiful, enhanced by the light of the full moon shining down from behind those rain clouds, London Grammar were a quite wonderful end to this epic festival weekend. Thank you Wilderness.
Apparently this is the Monday when we feel more fed up than any other in January. Personally I’m not feeling it. We’re an optimistic bunch at Blink towers so it’s a blessed day as far as we are concerned. I was tempted to post Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ for you, just to lift any flagging spirits, but then I thought that might be a bit of a cop-out. So instead, we’ve chosen ‘Drop The Game‘ from Flume and Chet Faker. It may not lift your mood as super swiftly as Pharrell, but it is very beautiful.
Flume is an Australian electro star, producer and DJ. We first came across him through his track, ‘Holdin On’ which we have loved for an age. This particular track is from a collaborative EP created with fellow Australian electro star, Chet Faker. The 3 track EP, titled ‘Lockjaw‘, came out in November last year, as did this track. I know it’s not super brand new, but we have only just discovered it, so it’s new to us! The video is a moody beauty perfectly expressing the dark deliciousness of ‘Drop The Game’ through the medium of dance. The dancer is New York street-dance star, Storyboard P who we recently discovered through Jay Z’s ‘Picasso Baby’ art installation video.
