Flume protests lockout laws with new track

Flume has dropped a new track in protest at Sydney's lockout laws.

The track, Heater, soundtracks a video showing the Keep Sydney Open group at work last week when they installed plaques around the city at various venues where musicians including Flume, Flight Facilities, Peking Duk, The Presets, The Preatures, and Lorde played for the first time in Sydney.

Flume's plaque was placed outside Goodgod small club where he played one of his first shows supporting Chet Faker, the same venue Lorde played her first Australian showcase.

The video follows the Keep Sydney Open activists as they place the plaques and some shrines outside various venues in Sydney.

The video also includes interviews from bands Art vs Science and Gang of Youths, who talk about how important it was for their careers to get those breaks in small city venues.

The introduction of the lockout laws, they argue, is damaging Sydney's live music scene with venues forced to close leaving a lack of late-night places for musicians to cut their teeth on the live scene.
