Bright Sparks – Slow Motion

Bright Sparks

Bright Sparks share another catchy and shimmering electro pop number, called ‘Slow Motion’.

It perfectly encapsulates that feeling when a relationship makes you feel numb and spaced out, perhaps because one person wants more from it than the other.

Alongside the awesome ‘Wildfire‘, ‘Slow Motion’ appears on their debut EP, out later in the year.

Sounds like: Disclosure, Years & Years, Aluna George, Salt Ashes, Lxury, LA Priest, TCTS, Karma Kid, Le Youth, Moon Boots, Friend Within, Feist, Ben Khan, Oh Wonder

Bright Sparks – Wildfire

Whilst the sound of Bright Sparks might be familiar (they’ve been featured on tracks with Sam Feldt and MÖWE), ‘Wildfire’ is their first ever solo release.

Already working with high flyers (the track has also been produced by Years & Years producer Andy Smith (aka Lxury)), ‘Wildfire’ offers that flying electro pop that we love at Indietronica.

Bright Sparks will release their EP in early 2017.

Sounds like: Disclosure, Years & Years, Aluna George, Salt Ashes, Lxury, LA Priest, TCTS, Karma Kid, Le Youth, Moon Boots, Friend Within, Feist, Ben Khan, Oh Wonder

Interview: RÜFÜS

RÜFÜS

RÜFÜS

Sydney-based band, RÜFÜS, are back with a new video and a cool remix of ‘Be With You’

Considering RÜFÜS tour non stop, we were pretty lucky to tie them down for an interview. Unfortunately, we still haven’t gotten to the bottom of the name difference in North America and the rest of the world…

Hi RÜFÜS, we are huge fans! For those of you who don’t know you yet, tell us a bit more about yourself and how you all got into music.

Calling the band RÜFÜS was a decision we made because we liked the way it sounded foreign to us, and also because it was quite symmetrical on paper, which we liked also. However, we didn’t think that most people would assume RÜFÜS is the name of the singer in the band. We’ve been trying to get people to realise we are a 3 piece live act for the past few years. They don’t get it even when they come to a show.

Why do you call yourselves RÜFÜS du Sol in North America, but RÜFÜS in the rest of the world?

Our attorney has advised that legal reasons is the appropriate answer.

Describe your sound in three words.

Never ending touring.

Where do you cite your musical influences from?

So many places. They are different for each of us. We listen to a lot of contemporary music to get inspired. Recently, we’ve been listening to a lot of Radiohead, Moderat, HAELOS, Bob Moses, Leon Vynehall etc. In the past it was Booka Shade in a massive way. They are the godfathers.

Friend Within has just released a remix of your track, ‘Be With You’. How did that come about?

We’ve wanted him to work on a remix for a while.

You are playing your biggest show to date in London in October. Tell UK fans why this will this be such a great show!

We’ve heard the venue is special. The first night sold out so we’ve announced another show, so we’re always in a very good mood when we get to do 2 shows back to back without driving, flying somewhere in between. It’s a real treat for us so we’ll make sure we are good to those who made it possible 😉

We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?

Answered this one above. But, Anderson Paak and Blood Orange have really nailed it this year.

Sounds like: Cut Copy, Foals, Booka Shade, Holy Ghost!, Midnight Juggernauts, Goldroom
