Just as this past September was winding down, Flume dropped a surprise single, arguably his biggest in years, “Rushing Back,” featuring vocalist Vera Blue. Alongside the release came news of Flume’s plans for a full-scale fall tour. Now, Flume’s returned to keep listeners satiated well into the new year; the Australian producer has released the music video for the single, which features himself seated alongside Blue.
The video serves as a visual appendage to the relationship reflection inherent in the lyrics. The camera traces circles around the two, each vantage point offering viewers insight into different times in the depicted relationship, which seems to lure and overwhelm each member into something of a revolving staircase of emotions—hence the title.
Incisive viewers will recognize the Nissan in the video as the same one featured in Flume’s visualizer for his explosive mixtape of this year, Hi This Is Flume.
The video is directed by longtime Flume collaborator, Jonathan Zawada. It’s available to stream now on Flume’s YouTube Channel.
