RÜFÜS DU SOL Win ‘Best Dance/Electronic Recording’ At The 2022 Grammys

RÜFÜS DU SOL are officially Grammy winners. At the 2022 ceremony last night (Sunday, April 3), the Australian live-electronic band won Best Dance/Electronic Recording for their haunting existential single, “Alive.” The single was the first from their latest album, Surrender.

This is the first time the band, consisting of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George, and James Hunt, has taken home a Grammy. The group was previously nominated at the 2019 ceremony for both major electronic music categories. Their album SOLACE was considered for Best Dance/Electronic Album, and their track “Underwater” was under the category they would go on to win in 2022.

“We’re at a loss for words. It’s the highest accolade…I feel it’s something we’ve discussed over the years being a band and setting career goals. (It’s) such an ambitious thing and something we’d never expected. We make music for ourselves, and ‘Alive’ was a really personal song for us. Then releasing it was really special, for it to connect with people and perform it live. But then to win this accolade for it? We’re still in shock,” George said to triple j following the win.

Check out an interview with RÜFÜS DU SOL along with their mixing engineer, Cassian, and their producer, Jason Evigan, just after their win.
