It's been a couple years since RÜFÜS DU SOL became your favorite electronic trio with "Innerbloom." In the interim, the Australian band toured the globe, performing for more than 100 sold-out audiences across 13 countries. That kind work is exhausting but inspiring, and somewhere in there, RÜFÜS made time to write and record a third album in Venice, CA.
“It feels like a new RÜFÜS,” the trio says in a joint statement. “We are inspired by our new home out here, by the people we’ve met and the music we’ve heard along the way. We’ve got a refreshed sense ambition and cannot wait to share our creation with the world."
The trio spent a year on the project, largely inspired by the desert landscape, as well as experiences on the road. It leads with single "No Place," a haunting, ethereal groove that's infectiously melodic with a slight tinge eeriness.
“'No Place' is the first piece music from an album we’ve been working on solidly for over a year now," the trio says. "It took about a year to find the song we felt right about as the first piece music from this record. We knew as soon as we heard it come out the speakers that this was how we wanted to greet people this time around. It feels good to be back."
No word on when the full third album will drop or what it will be called, though some repetitive listening "No Place," out on Reprise Records, should be enough to hold you over. In the meantime, you can also catch the band as it makes its way across the United States with some stops at Bonnaroo and Electric Forest Festival.
