One of my favorite indie dance bands right now is called RÜFÜS or RÜFÜS DU SOL. The name of the band depends on where you live. I hung out with the three Aussies (Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt) who make up RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL in a dark alley behind the venue while they waited for opening act and Aussie pals Hermitude to finish.
What’s the deal with the two band names? What strange connection does RÜFÜS DU SOL have to singer Rufus Wainwright? Which RÜFÜS DU SOL track was born one night trying to make something that sounded like Booka Shade and Trentemøller? Where was the craziest place the boys have partied in Berlin? Which band member sleepwalks? What advice do the boys have for my interview style? Which member of the band owes everyone drinks? Listen to find out.
