Music Video of the Day: RÜFÜS "Like An Animal" (2015)

RÜFÜS (or RÜFÜS DU SOL as they are known in North America) continually deliver fantastic music. And their latest single - the second to be taken from their upcoming record Bloom - "Like An Animal" is no exception. Directed by Katzki, featuring animation by Jack Vanzet & Katzki, is also a pretty damn fine clip and it makes it in as our final Music Video of the Day for this week! Watch it here:

RÜFÜS announce world tour in support of "You Were Right" this October & November!

Sydney boys RÜFÜS have announced a huge two-week run of tour dates that will take them around the country and then back to North America, all in support of their killer tune, "You Were Right". It's been a good while since we've seen RÜFÜS perform full headline sets, so we're keen to see what the live show is like now the trio have had time away to work on new material and revitalise as performers in general!

Foals and Bloc Party lead the first artist announcement for the Falls & Southbound festivals!

Now that Splendour in the Grass is over for another year, Australian festival goers can now look ahead to the next major run of festivals coming up over the New Year period and for 2015, the crew behind the Falls and Southbound festivals have delivered a pretty slick line up of artists set to bring in your New Year right. Leading the first artist announcement of the festival tour are Foals and Bloc Party, both British bands who have long enjoyed a successful relationship with fans in Australia.

This That Festival names Birds of Tokyo, Asta, Tkay Maidza and more on inaugural line up!

A new festival is coming to Newcastle and it's got a little bit of this, a little bit of that... Titled 'THIS THAT', the festival will be taking over the Newcastle Foreshore with 16 artists set to bring some memorable live performances the area in October. Leading the charge is the likes of Birds of Tokyo, Asta and Tkay Maidza, while some of Sydney's best food trucks and the team from The Follower and Hunt & Gather will be curating a one of a kind artisan market unseen at any other festival.

Single of the Day: RÜFÜS "You Were Right" (2015)

"Musically, we really resonate… We just all agreed instantly that it was a good move, to find a bit of inspiration." When we spoke with James from RÜFÜS last year, the concept of relocating to Berlin to work on album #2 was very much cemented in the minds of the Sydney band. Returning home early this year to wrap up work on their highly anticipated Atlas follow up, RÜFÜS have finally given fans a taste of what they've been toiling away on over in Germany in "You Were Right".

the AU review's 15 most anticipated Australian records of 2015

After an incredible year of new Australian music in 2014, we have an incredible array of records in the pipeline for the new year. Some are from bands who we've been waiting to hear from again for years... some for the first time... others are continuously pumping out incredible music and we have no desire for them to stop! In no particular order, here are the fifteen Australian albums (some confirmed, some still to be...) that we can't wait for (or at the very least are hoping for...) in 2015:

Festival Review: Field Day - The Domain, Sydney (01.01.15)

The concept of a music festival the day after the biggest global celebration, New Years Eve, seems flawed from the get go. But the crowd and energy tell a very different story. Festival boys are wearing deep, deep v-neck singlets matched with beards and bucket hats, every other girl is either in a black trilby hat or a bra-less midriff, and everyone is there for a good time.
