Video: RÜFÜS DU SOL – Treat You Better

Globally renowned live-electronic band RÜFÜS DU SOL have released a music video for their break-out track ‘Treat You Better’ off their ‘SOLACE’ LP out now via their own Rose Avenue imprint and Reprise Records. This follows the announcement of their headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace later this year.

The video welcomes fans into the emotive world in which the album was written – one defined by honesty and introspection. ‘Treat You Better’ leads the melancholy, yet dance driven LP as a euphoric ode to both the band’s loved-ones and themselves, a calling out for heartfelt self-improvement.

Shot in Mexico City, the new music video features intimate scenes of subjects lost in their own emotions, subsequently reaching within and outwardly to find solace in that which brings them joy. Viewers are left with a sense of yearning for passionate support and self-care that continues to define the band’s personal and sonic development.

The authenticity of the record has been felt far and wide in the live space as RÜFÜS have tantalized packed crowds around the globe on their SOLACE World Tour. The album run has already seen them dominate sold out performances at London’s Printworks, LA’s Shrine and New York City’s Terminal 5 three nights in a row, and is now heading towards their top billing return at this year’s Coachella Festival.

RÜFÜS DU SOL – Lost In My Mind

One of the world’s most celebrated live electronic bands RÜFÜS DU SOL share the third offering, ‘Lost In My Mind’ from their forthcoming album ‘SOLACE’. Highlighted as one of the most ambitious and gritty tracks off the album, it is honoured today as Zane Lowe’s World Record with Apple Music Beats 1, and comes as the band grace the cover of September legendary dance music publication, Mixmag. ‘Lost In My Mind’ puts forth a pent up desire for escapism and a true grasp for analogue sound-design, confirming ‘SOLACE’ as the band’s most mature and thought provoking effort to date.

RÜFÜS DU SOL has spent the past year in Venice, California, writing and recording their third album, which is largely influenced by the dichotomy of the stark desert landscapes and beautiful coastline of California. It’s a fuller exploration of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s ever evolving musical spectrum, a deeper dive and a more intimate glimpse into both melancholy and transcendence.

“It feels like a new RÜFÜS. We are inspired by our new home out here, by the people we’ve met and the music we’ve heard along the way. We’ve got a refreshed sense of ambition and cannot wait to share our creation with the world.” RÜFÜS DU SOL
