Atlas debuted at #1 on the national ARIA chart upon its release in Australia last year, and was nominated for two ARIA awards for Best Dance Release and Breakthrough Artist of the Year. The band has received much praise for their debut, with MTV Hive noting, “Australian indie-dance juggernaut Rüfüs are poised for a worldwide breakout…nobody can deny their infectious results.” Hailing from Sydney, Australia, three-piece Rüfüs Du Sol has risen from obscurity to the forefront of Australian indie dance acts. The band has garnered international recognition on the back of driving, catchy, danceable tunes, a killer live show, and a dedicated online following. The band have put together four EPs in addition to debut album Atlas, remixed a plethora of tracks and played parties, shows and festivals from Sydney to New York City to Moscow.
