After that first meeting, they kept messaging. The second time they met, they sat on a picnic blanket in a local park and Annabelle said she thought she still loved him. Junior said he’d never stopped loving her. She liked the fact that he remembered their song, CeCe Peniston’s Finally, even though it was cheesy. They told each other their stories; that they’d both been married and had since separated. “We opened up, told each other personal stuff about what we’d been through since we broke up,” Annabelle says. “There was no pretence, no playing games. Because of Covid-19, we just held hands.” Since lockdown has eased, they’ve had more dates and met each other’s families. “They’re over the moon for us,” she says. “We know we’re meant to be together.

Flume has proven best when he has a collaborator worthy of his productions, and Celia Pavey doesn’t disappoint, gifting this song with a masterful vocal that skips from a chesty croon to a strong falsetto. Flume matches her intensity with one of his most inventive sonic beds to date, a minimalist beat interjected with chaotic backwards keyboard parts that sound like he is manning a drum machine and rewinding an overdue video tape at the same time. Sitting somewhere between Noel Gallagher’s Beatles-cribbing experiments with the Chemical Brothers, and Kate Bush had she gone clubbing on the moors, this is a great avant-garde pop single. … [Read more...] about Archie Roach, Hallie and Caiti Baker: best Australian music for October
