After recently dropping their anticipated third LP Solace, RÜFÜS DU SOL hit the road on their biggest Aussie tour yet with shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth selling out within minutes of going on sale. Solace follows RÜFÜS DU SOL’s previous two platinum-certified albums ATLAS and Bloom, and is an album that is as sonically rich as it is emotionally intelligent. The Australian three-piece, comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt, have explored new territory on Solace; born out of a particularly poignant period for the band, it tackles heavier themes such as the pain of loss and the persistence of memory. This is unequivocally the group’s most sophisticated work to date.
Australian Musician’s Jason Rosewarne captured the band’s show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne on February 14th.
