The new material is the latest from producers Flume and Emoh Instead and borders on sensory overload with its soaring synths, bass-heavy kicks, percussive rhythms and smooth female vocals.
“We just wanted to make a pretty solid banger,” Emoh told MTV of the pair’s inspiration behind the track. “We wrote it a while ago but it took some time to polish it off and get it over the line, but it was well worth the wait.”
The clip, directed by Heckler & Feeling, was created in collaboration with the NSW Government and youth charity I-Manifest, and saw a number of Australia’s best creative minds get together to produce the video.
Featuring appearances by the likes of stylist Pip Edwards (design director at General Pants), Maz Compton (presenter at 2Day FM), MTV VJ Kate Peck and Chris Emerson and Harley Streton (together as What So Not), the project also includes an interactive clip which gives fans the chance to play their part in the making of the film clip and unlock a secret What So Not remix.

"We are just two young musicians in the dance world [and] videos of this calibre for people like us are just unheard of,” Emoh continued. “Working with the Heckler team, all the volunteers and Kate from MTV was absolutely incredible. We’re so stoked to be a part of this I-Manifest project.”
“Growing up, we didn’t really know it was possible to make a sustainable living from being creative and doing what we love,” the pair added. “We had a lot of fun making the video and we hope it encourages other people to turn their creative aspirations into a career.”
It’s been a big year for the Aussie super-duo, with the pair releasing a number of chart-topping singles, selling out a huge national tour and landing a coveted spot on the Stereosonic lineup.
