RÜFÜS DU SOL are a Sydney based trio carving out place for themselves on dance floors and stages the world over. Using layered synths, drums and warm vocals, Jon, James and Tyrone have built a soundscape and aesthetic that is entirely familiar, yet distinctly their own.
After releasing two EP’s on their own label and a string of remixes, the band locked themselves away into a disused water tank-turned recording studio; Emerging eight months later with their debut record ATLAS in August 2013. Debuting at #1 on the ARIA album charts, ATLAS was nominated for 6 ARIA awards and went on to win ‘Best Electronic Album’, at the Australian Independent Records Awards, along with a string of other accolades as it took the band to the world stage.
As a live act, their show is a statement of intent, equal parts hypnotic rhythmic accents and calculated euphoric climaxes. Their Australian ‘Worlds Within Worlds’ was sold out from start to finish with 30,000+ tickets sold. While elsewhere they are selling out shows in L.A, San Fran, NYC, London, Amsterdam and Brussels. Their Festival achievements read as a wish-list with performances at; Splendour In The Grass, Field Day, Reading & Leeds, Falls Festival, Berlin Festival, etc. all cementing their place as one of the most exciting breakthrough electronic acts of recent times.
Currently in locked down in their Sydney studio, the band are working on the follow up to ATLAS, having spent the latter part of 2014 writing between Berlin, Suffolk and Sydney studios. Expect new music soon…
