Sydney, Australia-based RÜFÜS make atmospheric indie electronic dance-pop. Formed in 2010 when a rain-soaked vacation to Byron Bay turned into an impromptu jam session, RÜFÜS feature the talents of guitarist Tyrone Lindqvist, keyboardist Jon George, and drummer James Hunt. The trio quickly released two EPs, 2011's RÜFÜS and 2012's Blue. In 2013, they delivered their debut album, Atlas, on the Sweat It Out label. Boasting four singles that hit Australia's indie Top Ten ("Take Me," "Desert Night," "Tonight," "Sundream"), Atlas topped the Australian charts and eventually reached gold certification. As their international exposure increased, they ran into some complications with the use of their name in the American market, forcing them to change their name to Rufus Du Sol in the United States. RÜFÜS returned in 2016 with their sophomore full-length album, Bloom, featuring the Top 40 single "You Were Right," plus "Like an Animal" and "Innerbloom." ~ Matt Collar
