Billboard Dance is proud to present its brand new discovery series, Radar, spotlighting Aussie live/electronic outfit RÜFÜS DU SOL as its introductory act.
Jon George, Tyrone Lindqvist and James Hunt formed the live electronic band in 2010 and recently released their sophomore album on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective imprint.
The LP, titled Bloom, is comprised of 11 tracks and includes their hit, “You Were Right,” which won an ARIA Music Award for best dance release in 2015.
Their aim is ambitious, yet simple in statement: To tour the world and reach as many eyes and ears as possible. Jon George says, “We’ve written the album, planted the seeds and now it’s time to ‘Bloom.'”
Later this year, the Australian trio will make their debut performances at Coachella and Firefly, with a handful of other appearances yet to be announced.
Listen below to our hand-picked selection of records that have helped shape RÜFÜS DU SOL into the artists they are today.
