RÜFÜS DU SOL have emerged as one of the world’s preeminent live electronic acts. The
Australian three-piece, known formerly to the world as just RÜFÜS, have thus far won the world
over with two platinum-certified albums, ATLAS and Bloom , with a much-anticipated third on the
Comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, RÜFÜS DU SOL have
come to occupy the intersection of charming indie dance and intelligent electronic music. With a
style that expertly blends infectious songwriting with delectable deep house grooves, the trio
have carved out a signature sound that is both poignant and relentlessly infectious.
Much of the group’s success has been predicated on their live show: a highly emotional affair

on the horizon and a standout two-year tour at their backs, RÜFÜS DU SOL have entered a
new era of their career.
“It feels like a new RÜFÜS,” the trio says. “We’re excited about this new music. We’re ambitious
