Tension building under dimmed spotlights, an anxious crowd bearing down on railings with gritted teeth, and a stage obscured by a wall of black sheets — such was the scene in the EF on Wednesday night. As “Helix” slowly built in the background, gaggles of arm-linked teens made their way [quite aggressively] through the crowd to reach the front. These kids were serious about experiencing this show up close and personal and Flume proved exactly why.
The 24-year-old Australian EDM artist, who has been making waves with his single “Never Be Like You” off of his sophomore album Skin, put on a hell of a show. Between the stage set, captivating lightshow and rave-inducing beats, the sold out crowd was entranced from beginning to end. Flume played tracks from both Skin and his debut album Sleepless, as well as popular remixes, including his take of Lorde’s “Tennis Court”. As his 90 minute set came to a close, confetti rained down on the crowd while they cheered for more. As is showbiz tradition, Flume returned to the stage for a three song encore, leaving his fans drenched, exhausted and completely satisfied.
