"Rushing Back"

"Rushing Back" is a song by Australian electronic musician Flume, featuring Australian singer songwriter Vera Blue. It was released as a single on 27 September 2019, by Australian music label Future Classic. The track was first premiered on radio Triple J on 26 September 2019 after being performed live for the first time during Flume's Lollapalooza Festival set last in August.[1]


Speaking on Triple J, Flume said it was Vera's 'vocal gymnastics' that really caught his attention, particularly on her 2015 single "Hold". Flume said "I heard her song 'Hold' and I was like, this is insane. Her voice, the melody... As soon as I heard that I was like, we have to find this person and work with her."[2]

In 2016, Flume collaborated with Vera Blue (and Vince Staples, Ku?ka and Ngaiire) and covered Ghost Town DJ's "My Boo" for Triple J's Like a Version.[3]

In 2019, Flume and Vera Blue met in Los Angeles for this "Rushing Back".[2]

Vera Blue said "Harley (aka Flume) threw me a bunch of ideas and I was riffing over the songs, just humming melodies that came to my head based on how the song made me feel. There were a couple of ideas I resonated with but I really fell in love with this one as soon as I heard the first few chords, which eventually blossomed into 'Rushing Back'."[4]

The song was performed live in August 2019 during Flume's Lollapalooza Festival performance, in Chicago.[4]

Critical reception

Debbie Carr from Triple J said "'Rushing Back' feels like a natural evolution for the Sydney producer, taking the jagged, futuristic production we first heard from him back on Skin and pushing it into a new melodic earworm territory."[2]
