If you’re going to do your first Like A Version in eight years, you might as well go big with a Nirvana cover. 

That’s exactly what RÜFÜS DU SOL did this week, returning to the triple j studios to perform a rendition of ‘Something in the Way’, a cut from Nirvana’s seminal 1991 album Nevermind.

It was the acclaimed electronic trio’s first Like A Version since 2014, when they covered Foals infectious hit ‘My Number’ and ‘Charlotte’ by German house duo Booka Shade.

While in the triple j studios, RÜFÜS DU SOL also performed their own song ‘I Don’t Wanna Leave’, taken from their chart-topping 2021 album Surrender. You can watch both performances below.

At last month’s ARIA Awards, the group won the award for Best Produced Album, while they were also the most nominated act with seven nominations, including for Album of the Year (won by Baker Boy’s Gela).

The group are currently on the Australia and New Zealand leg of their mammoth world tour, with several days remaining before the end of the year (see full details below). In Sydney alone, they sold a staggering 50,000 tickets over just two shows.

2023 is also shaping up nicely for RÜFÜS DU SOL, with Surrender earning them two nominations at next year’s Grammy Awards: Best Dance/Electronic Recording (‘On My Knees’) and Best Dance/Electronic Album. They’re the only Australian act to receive a nomination next year.
