Set for release through Columbia Records on April 14th, tropical anthem 'Take Me' is the next single from RÜFÜS and a perfect antidote to our wet and grey climes. Blending romantic electronic pop with Balearic-style house, the Australian trio take you away on a dreamy escape, showcasing their ability to write synth-heavy, indie-pop bangers that are ready-made for the dancefloor.
'Take Me' is the 2nd single taken from their debut album 'Atlas' - set for release on April 28th. The album reached number 1 and went Gold in their native country, with 'Take Me' gaining heavy rotation on Triple J - being in the top 10 most played for 4 weeks and peaking at number 2. It also debuted at number 7 on the iTunes dance chart and was featured on DJ A-Track's Mad Decent Podcast, accumulating 420,000+ views online. Previous single 'Desert Night' reached number 1 in the Hype Machine Chart, collecting over 770,000 plays on Soundcloud to date.
In addition to massive antipodean live and chart success, RÜFÜS' killer set has wowed crowds worldwide, including 17 sold out gigs on their Australian album tour, plus shows at the Art Love festival in Moscow and the Kistuné party in NYC - which tied into 2 RÜFÜS tracks featuring on 'Kitsune Maison Compilation 14' ('This Summer' - J Bag remix and 'Talk To Me'). They have also supported the likes of Royksopp and Yuksek, and graced festival stages at Big Day Out, Parklife and Homebake.
RÜFÜS ended 2013 with 2 ARIA nominations and 3 tracks in the Triple J Hottest 100. They were also nominated for a Triple J award for Best Australian Album and are currently approaching 4 million views of their originals, remixes and edits on YouTube, with over 2 million plays on Soundcloud.
'ATLAS' is out on 28th April through Columbia Records. Previous single 'Desert Night' has garnered support from BBC Radio 1, 6Music and 1Xtra plays from Pete Tong (who made it his Essential Tune), Phil & Alice, Annie Mac and Toddla T, plus John Kennedy on XFM.
