Rüfüs du Sol Bloom (Sweat It Out!)

If you loved the sun-kissed vibes of Rüfüs du Sol’s first album, Atlas, then you’ll love its follow-up, Bloom, as it is exactly the same. The Australian dance-pop trio aims its groove-laden, soft beats toward daytime beach parties rather than dark dancefloors. The happy rhythms are evened out by melancholic vocals, which if they were any other way would make Rüfüs too sugary. Instead, tracks such as the caressing “Brighter” and lively “Like an Animal” hit a perfect balance.

Stream the album via Noisey.
