listen aloud

What do you remember from your last trip to Argentina?

We were stopping at a place near the river. We were very excited about the show because This was our first show in South America, We knew that the audience here is very loud and enthusiastic. The show was great.

-At the time it was in Lollapalooza and now it will be on their own show. Which of the two positions is better for Rufus du Soul?

Simply, they are different. I mean, I like to play a show where I am not in the limelight, I have nothing to lose and I have to gain new fans.

it’s very nice, They usually put us in the slot at sunset, which is my favorite time to play, the transition between day and night. There things get wild and interesting, the stage lights up.

But our tour shows are also great because we play for two hours or more, put in all the songs we like and We can take the masses on a one-of-a-kind journeyIt’s not like playing singles after another.

-I think going on tour again will be an important event. How do you see this pandemic from today’s perspective?

We are so grateful to be back on the road. We love to play and write music and it was very difficult to stop for two years.

For me personally, I have a two and a half year old boy, well, it was like a miracle because I was able to share all those days with him and watch him grow. I don’t know what it would be like if I was on tour all the time. Now he’s three years old and he knows I’m his father! (laughs) It is different for us to tour now. Earlier we were three months away, now no more than one and a half.

Writing music without time limits was also good, that was good.

– How would you explain the influence of nature in the group’s music? Does it have anything to do with being from Australia where nature is very present?

,We love that world between digital, computer, electronic art and the organic universe, tree, plant, bird, as a living thing. Landscape, ocean.

All this is very important to us, because we play instruments, our music has vocals and also analog synthesizers, processed drums, rhythm machines. There is a very interesting world between those two places.

Nature is in our videos. Many songs talk about nature. We have mixed all this theme with angular electronic sounds.

-You moved from your native Sydney to live in Los Angeles, how did both cities affect your music?

There is a radio station in Australia named Triple J, which is heard all over the country. They play all kinds of music out there: metal, hip hop, electronic, indie. We have grown up hearing this every day. We got exposed to a lot of music and found things we love in many genres.

With respect to Los Angeles, they are like two sides of the coin. Aside It’s a city of big dreams, of opportunities and then too dark, It can suck you up and make you spit in terms of partying. For example, it’s easy to lose your mind in Los Angeles.

But it’s also a place where you can find many creative people: producers, musicians, other kinds of artists. Many people who make art and music; that always impresses you.

importance of grammy

– How did you win the Grammy? How did you get such compliments from the music industry?

-It was wonderful. We have been with the band for 12 years and we always work with the same people. It means a lot, and the moment we were called to receive the award, well, it was real. Just like having been nominated for two Grammys three years ago. Coming from Australia, we never saw it as a possibility.,

The whole sequence felt like a dream, not real.

It’s nice to be recognized for anything, but this was especially surprising as the rest of the nominees impressed us; It is a great honour.

-And speaking of success, in Rio de Janeiro you will play at a festival in which a world music icon like Gilberto Gil plays in front of you. It got me thinking, what does success mean for Rufus du Soul?

-success for me be happy doing what we love, The songs we make, we write together, the three people we compose, compose and play different instruments, and we have a lot of fun doing it.

And then when we finish a song, we sit for three months, we cover it again and if we still like it, well, it’s out. It’s important, because we’ll be touching these topics for the rest of our lives, right?

So we want to make sure that we like it and that it feels authentic, that we feel the connection.
