Rüfüs Du Sol reveal they recorded an album last year

music news 23/01/2020

Rüfüs Du Sol's 2018 album Solace was an absolutely massive record and has now been nominated for two GRAMMY Awards - news which took the Aussie band by Surprise.

Single “Underwater” is up for Best Dance Recording, and Solace for Best Dance/Electronic Album - where the trio is up against the likes of Skrillex, Flume, Tycho and The Chemical Brothers.

Band member Jon George revealed in an interview with Variety what receiving the nominations was like:

'It was a complete surprise. Woke up to my phone buzzing hot with messages of support and congrats from friends,' he said. 'It was a pretty great way to start the day. Did not expect it.'

He was also asked about what they'd been up to in the studio.

'We have a trip out to the Valley Of the Yuccas planned in April for a few weeks. We recorded a live album out there late last year. No one knows about that just yet, so I guess this is the exclusive on that. But, we loved it so much out there we thought that we need to come back on our next writing trip and set up here for a couple of weeks and really dig into some ideas.'

We'll find out Sunday whether the band can scoop a couple of Grammys - check out the full breakdown of dance/electronic nominees here.
