Rufus Du Sol – one of Australia's and the world's most preeminent live electronic bands – have today released their brand new single No Place via Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Built on a haunting and ethereal foundation, the track crescendos to capture the exhilaration of encountering a siren, a soulmate, a wondrous exposé of the emotive style they have become known for. No Place premiered on Triple J Drive yesterday, and marks the first new music from the trio in more than two years. Stream or buy No Place here.
Formerly known as RÜFÜS, the Australian three-piece comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, Rufus Du Sol occupy the intersection of entrancing indie music and intelligent electronica. It is through this seamless transcendence of styles that their own sonic realm has unfolded; a landscape painted with the club culture of yesteryear and a poignant yet infectious ability to be ever in the moment.
In Australia, the band's debut album ATLAS reached #1 on the ARIA Album Chart and reaped Platinum status – such success was repeated in 2016 with their follow-up record BLOOM, which saw the album claim top spot on the ARIA Album Chart and achieve Platinum certification. In Australia alone, the band's catalogue has been streamed over 110 Million times – an incredible nod to RÜFÜS DU SOL's unparalleled electronic talent and inimitable sound. BLOOM offered RÜFÜS DU SOL's most iconic singles, -You Were Right' and -Innerbloom' and launched RÜFÜS DU SOL on a two-year international tour, playing over 100 sold-out shows across 13 countries, making them one of Australia's most successful live-music exports globally. The band's 2016 Australian tour, featured 2 sold out shows at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion, and an epic set at Listen Out Festival where the band headlined.
'The Australian trio knows how to set a mood, and sell it well," noted Billboard while MTV tipped RÜFÜS DU SOL as 'poised for worldwide breakout."
RÜFÜS DU SOL have spent the past year in Venice, CA, writing and recording their third album, which is largely influenced by the stark desert landscapes of California and their experiences on the road.
'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"
-No Place' comes just weeks after RÜFÜS DU SOL unveiled plans to play Los Angeles' Shrine Expo Hall on November 2 and 3, of which both sold out within minutes after being announced. In between performances at Bonnaroo and Electric Forest, the Australian three-piece will play a series of U.S. summer headline dates. For all touring and ticketing information go here
