The latest news from RÜFÜS DU SOL should make a big splash with fans. Ahead of their performance at Coachella, the trio announces they’ll be premiering a short film for their smash hit ‘Underwater.’ The film is set to debut on tomorrow at HP Inc.’s ‘The Antartic’ visual art installation. Additionally, they’ll be performing a DJ set and participating in a panel discussion (H/T Your EDM). This likely will provide a wave of momentum for the group as they head into their huge American tour.
Although Coachella is sold out, RÜFÜS DU SOL wanted to do something more for its fans before hitting the road. As a result, they’re offering this VIP event featuring the ‘Underwater‘ short film. Furthermore, fans will have access to the dome during the festival if they miss out on the premiere. This is a smart move for a group that has a very passionate fan base built on the intimacy of its live shows. With dates already booked into October, they’ve lined themselves up for an amazing slate of events in 2019.
Director James Frost was called on to direct the film. Apparently, the film will be a 360° experience, hence the setting of the Antartic Dome for the release. He’s worked with the Beastie Boys, Kylie Minogue, Coldplay and many more so he’s definitely got the tools to create something great. Along with that, he’s been eager to work with Rüfüs du Sol. He was quoted in a press release about the project saying this:
“Underwater’ is rich with layers, and the piece we’ve created immerses the audience visually and sonically in this expansive dome setting.”
