TRACK: YOU WERE RIGHT – Out Now
RÜFÜS are a Sydney based trio carving out a 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
‘You Were Right’ was premiered on Thursday night on triple j and has received an incredible reception since release. ‘You Were Right’ has jumped straight into the Top 20 on iTunes, received over 100K streams on Soundcloud and hit #1 on Hype Machine alongside receiving international attention from the likes of SPIN, MixMag and Indie Shuffle.
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 lockdown 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.
