RÜFÜS DU SOL have a live album in their back pocket
While 2019 brought news of twin Grammy nods and an ARIA (Australian music awards) nomination trifecta for RÜFÜS DU SOL, fans were met with near radio silence on the original release front for the year. But that doesn’t mean the group isn’t still set on driving their release train to dance music superstardom this year. The avant-garde Aussie outfit’s 2018 LP, Solace, was lauded near and far, “Underwater” and above water, for its poignant and pensive approach to melodic dance music. But it seems the group isn’t done with the work just yet.
“We recorded a live album out there late last year,” George told Variety. “… But, we loved it so much out there we thought that we need to come back on our next writing trip and set up here for a couple of weeks and really dig into some ideas.”
This will be the first live release from the group to date. There’s no drop date in the books yet, but time has proven the trio is isn’t afraid to take their time polishing finished work.
Those who’ve seen RÜFÜS live know the ensemble’s synergistic capabilities onstage. Their visceral performances allow listeners to live in the happy medium between live music and synth-driven ecstatic energy. A live album from the RÜFÜS camp seems just what our ears ordered for 2020.
