It has been one week since Grammy-nominated live-electronic trio RÜFÜS DU SOL released their fourth full length album, Surrender. The album gained plenty of momentum prior to the album release with singles found on Surrender including “On My Knees,” “Next to Me” and “Alive.” The trio have obviously found solace in creating new music throughout the last 2 years while we were holed up at home, but this album is some of their most raw and authentic stuff yet. Entering a new chapter for the band, RÜFÜS DU SOL continue to so expertly blend live instruments and electronic synths.
With 11 interwoven tunes, the album also sees a collaboration with Curtis Harding, a rare RÜFÜS experiment with collaboration. The trio also worked with LA-based children’s choir “Surrender” and “Make it Happen” – adding more of a “human” element. Combining both “dark and brooding dance floor” grooves with these more humanistic additions and crooning vocals, Tyrone, Jon George, and James can connect with a wide audience of listeners.
“Surrender is a message of personal maturity and of a deep connection to their community, as RÜFÜS DU SOL find themselves comfortably expressing their personal pains and heartaches for all to bear witness. This mutual reassurance between artist and audience is what continues to set RÜFÜS DU SOL apart, as everyone unites to understand themselves and explore the otherworldly, together.”
The band played last weekend at III Points Festival in Miami and both weekends of ACL before that.
