Beloved Aussie trio RÜFÜS DU SOL return today with their new single “Underwater”. This release follows “No Place”, which dropped in May and was their first single after a long hiatus. During that hiatus, the RÜFÜS boys were working on their anticipated third studio album, on which “Underwater” and “No Place” are to be included. This latest release is a tasteful follow-up track to “No Place”, as it is an artistic and melancholic record; In contrast to the preceding more playful and uplifting atmosphere.
“Underwater” starts with a perpetual synth, a cultured vocal chant and Tyrone Lindqvist’s engaging vocal accompaniment. Gaining momentum with powerful brass-like hits, the track gets carried into a relatable kick-snare pattern that grounds the listener. Eventually climaxing with an engraving chorus, “Underwater” showcases RÜFÜS DU SOL’s ability to connect with their listeners in various fashions. We actually heard this track performed at Electric Forest back in June, and we were able to capture a pretty solid video… Check it out below. Enjoy!
