Flume and Chet Faker Unveil Upcoming Lockjaw EP, New Single & Music Video.

Flume & Chet Faker

Flume and Chet Faker have released a new collaborative single Drop the Game. The song is from Flume & Chet Faker’s upcoming collaborative Lockjaw EP out worldwide via Future Classic on November 22nd. Drop the Game bounces in the club but feels intimate in the eardrums, a collision of the two artists exceptionally different styles. Game‘s off-kilter beat provides the perfect accompaniment for the the song’s dreamily warped backup vocals. The song’s overall emotional tone doesn’t shift or morph throughout the songs length, but it does a better job of impacting the emotional center of the listener; it crashes into and shatters it with the song’s heavy romantic weight.

Flume and Chet Faker have also released a music video for Drop the Game. The video features a mysterious street urchin breakdancing (!!!) with wobbly grace to the song’s intricate rhythm structure. The strength of the video comes from its simplicity in production design, creating a striking moody atmosphere using natural scenes of urban decay/development. At the videos end, the main character crawls on his hands and knees in front of a bus. It’s a splendid analogy for some of the more unintended consequences that urban cities face concerning a homeless population and social darwinism.
