IAustralian dance trio RÜFÜS DU SOL have consistently been lauded for their live act, having played numerous prominent festivals from Electric Forest to their most recent Coachella 2019 set, and touring an expansive North American itinerary. Now, they bring their performance chops to the late-night screen, marking their first-ever appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The electronic group consisting of Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George, and James Hunt, took to the stage to perform “Treat You Better” over Kimmel’s airwaves, the fourth single from their 2018 studio album Solace.
