Flume and London Grammar deliver best of both worlds on collaboration
Don’t you just love it when an unexpected collaboration between two artists happens and it delivers something you did not even realize you needed in your life? Well, that is exactly what happened to me with ‘Let You Know’ by Flume and London Grammar. The Australian producer, known for hits ‘Never Be Like You’ with Kai and ‘Say It’ with Tove Lo, returned earlier this year with a mixtape and the track ‘Friends’. With London Grammar by his side, he is seemingly eyeing another crossover pop hit. With ‘Let You Know’ he does thoroughly deserve it.
For London Grammar, the band behind lead singer Hannah Reid, this is their first new material since their sophomore album Truth Is A Beautiful Thing was released in 2017. Harley Streten (Flume’s real name) and Reid wrote the tune together and both their styles perfectly melt together. ‘Let You Know’ is first and foremost a Flume production with out of the box electronic beats and unexpected beat drops. There is a couple of interesting pace changes throughout, but Hannah’s melancholic vocals make the track sail smoothly. ‘Let You Know’ is not as poppy as London Grammar’s Disclosure collaboration ‘Help Me Lose My Mind’, but it is a bop and does have the potential to appeal to a huge audience. Reid’s vocals truly shine on London Grammar’s material, but sounds exceptionally good on electronic music like this too.
