New Audio: Renowned Australian Electronic Music Trio RUFUS DU SOL Releases an Anthemic Yet Intimate New Single

With the release of their first two albums — 2013’s ATLAS, which landed at number 1 on the Australian charts and earned platinum status and 2016’s critically and commercially successful follow up, Bloom, which featured smash hits “You Were Right” and “Innerbloom,” the Sydney, Australia-based electro pop trio RUFUS DU SOL, comprised of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt quickly became international sensations — and over the course of a two year long international tour, developed a reputation for combining the DIY live aesthetics of indie rock with the euphoria of classic club culture.
The Australian trio spent the past year in Venice, CA writing and recording their highly-anticipated third full-length album SOLACE, and as the trio notes, the album is largely influenced by the dichotomy of the stark desert landscapes and coastlines of California while being a much fuller exploration of their evolving sound, and a deeper, more intimate glimpse into both melancholy and transcendence. It feels like a new RÜFÜS,”the trio says. “We are inspired by our new home out here, by the people we’ve met and the music we’ve heard along the way. We’ve got a refreshed sense of ambition and cannot wait to share our creation with the world.”

 

SOLACE’s second and latest single “Underwater” will further cement the Australian trio’s growing reputation for forward-thinking, boundary pushing production as the track is centered around arpeggiated and propulsive Giorgio Moroder-like synths, a soaring choral hook and verses that express an aching longing. And from the latest single, it shouldn’t be surprising that the act manages to walk a tightrope between arena and club rocking bombast with an earnest and intimate emotionality, as though the song is confession between the listener and the song’s narrator.

The internationally renowned electro pop trio will be on a month long North American tour during the fall and it includes three New York City area dates — November 23, November 24 and November 25 at Terminal 5. Check out the tour dates below.
