RÜFÜS’s world in lights


According to R�F�S vocalist Tyrone Lindqvist, those on stage sometimes do notice ” and these guys think it’s ‘really cool’.

Having just finished a tour of the US and Canada, including an appearance at SXSW, where the indie dance trio’s debut album Atlas had not yet been released, it was something they were ready for.

‘It’s really exciting to get in front of new audiences,’ Lindqvist said.

‘People know the record is out here, so the response and the energy and the crowd is probably going to be really different over there.

‘I don’t think it’s nerve-wracking. It’s just a different experience. It will be nice to see them trying to sing along.’

After a brief stopover in the UK to support fellow Aussies Cut Copy, R�F�S will embark on their biggest national tour to date, which includes shows at Lindqvist’s ‘favourite venue in the world’ Enmore Theatre in Sydney and the ‘amazing’ Palace Theatre in Melbourne.

‘The really exciting thing about all these venues is the scale,’ Lindqvist said.

‘The size that they are allows us to do the show that we’ve always dreamt of. It’s more of a show feeling and less of just walking in and watching a band play.

‘We’ve been really working on the show and I’m really excited for people to see that because it’s something that people haven’t seen us do yet.’

The 15-date Worlds Within Worlds tour will hit WA on May 30 with shows in Mandurah and Fremantle.

‘We’ve never really travelled with a lighting guy that has a choreographed show from start to finish,’ Lindqvist said.

‘The capabilities of what it can do are really exciting. It’s just a really cool canvas to play on.

‘I think (fans) will get a kick out of it and hopefully some surprises in it.’

After their final show in hometown Sydney, the trio will relocate to Berlin for a few months to start working on their next album.

‘It’s like a city that was built on love,’ Lindqvist said.

‘A lot of the artists we’re inspired by are from the region and I think it will be a really cool place to just soak up some vibes.

It will be interesting to see what we come out with.’
