Ever since Australian trio RÜFÜS DU SOL began releasing singles from its third studio LP Solace, fans have been thirstier than a desert wanderer for more. That's actually an apt metaphor, because this album was directly inspired by the band's experiences in its new home of California.
The album artwork and much of its musical moods draw inspiration from the haunting, magical, psychedelic landscapes of the Golden State's exotic interiors. Its lyrics are stories of transformation and change. The whole album feels emergent, like a new plant breaking through the soil to reach the light.
It's quite personal, really, but in a relative fashion RÜFÜS hopes touches you in meaningful ways. Below, we have the story on each of Solace's nine tracks, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
