Yet another stellar product of Australia’s indie-dance scene, Rüfüs (or the requisite Rüfüs du Sol in the U.S. and Canada only due to trademark being "a serious bitch") invade North America this spring on a headlining tour following a successful run of sold-out Aussie shows and the release of their debut album, Atlas. With tracks, such as “Desert Night,” incorporating elements of prog house and the sunkissed nu-disco vibes that have become so pervasive in the last few years, Rüfüs know exactly how to craft songs equally fit for a 3 a.m. dance party or an afternoon chill session by the pool. Also known for their energetic live shows, this trio should not be missed when they pass through Portland.
