It’s no easy feat taking a big electronic track and changing it into an airy and captivating acoustic rework but Dustin and Lisa’s team up seem to do it in such an effortless and enchanting way that makes the track utterly captivating to listen to. Really it’s a testament to the collaborative nature of the upcoming shows, demonstrating how the two are able to work together in what seems like perfect harmony to create sonic magic.
The cover marks the first time the artists have recorded as a pair. The recording came together across continents with Lisa on tour in Europe and the UK during the process and Dustin in the studio back home in Sydney.
“I recorded my parts in Berlin, and sent them to Dustin. All the preparation of this tour has been done via email and phone – definitely the Distant Call tour!,” says Lisa. “He’s done such a beautiful job of the production. Looking forward to performing this at our shows together in June!”
“RÜFÜS’ song, Innerbloom, is hauntingly beautiful,” says Dustin. “We often use the word ‘songs’ when describing pop or folk, and tend to lean more to ‘tracks’ the closer we get to the electronic end of the spectrum, but for me ‘Innerbloom’ is the perfect sweet spot between both. Hopefully, we’ve done it some justice with this version!“
‘Innerbloom’ won’t be the only song the two artists will perform together during the tour. Sharing the same band – performing their own originals together as well as a handful of solo tracks – they’ll combine their collective energy with a carefully curated hour and a half set joined also by Australia via New York upstart Alex the Astronaut on her first ever national tour of in Australia.
