Australian electronic giants RÜFÜS DU SOL have released their full 45-minute concert live from Joshua Tree.
A live concert film show and recorded in the desert, “Live from Joshua Tree,” sees the infectious and iconic harmonies of RÜFÜS DU SOL welcome with a desert sunrise. The film takes the viewer through some of the band’s most recognizable tunes, presented in an immersive and awe-inspiring format.
The special live performance was captured in audio and video which you can watch in HD below. The audio edition is available as a live album out now on Rose Avenue Records and you can stream here.
Featuring an array of scattered LED beams throughout the Mojave Desert, the beautifully shot performance is everything you would expect from RÜFÜS and the set list features everything from “Eyes” and “New Sky” to “Innerbloom” and more.
“The idea for a film was born out on a writing trip in Joshua Tree when we were trying to finish SOLACE. We stayed up all night writing as the sun rose, this creeping light over the valley made its way into the room. We climbed these wild rock formations to a little vista at the top, about 100 feet above where we were writing and sat to take in the sunrise. We were listening to tunes on a speaker and someone put on Time by the Pachanga Boys. Watching dawn break with this epic 15 minute journey playing out, we started joking about putting together a sunrise set in the desert where we would play to no one,” explains drummer James Hunt.
