RÜFÜS DU SOL are the only Australian act nominated in 2023 Grammy Awards

The group won a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Recording at this year’s ceremony

The nominees for this year’s Grammy Awards were announced earlier today (November 16), and from the dozens of acts nominated, just one is of Australian origin: RÜFÜS DU SOL.

Out of a total 91 awards up for grabs, RÜFÜS DU SOL are nominated for two: Best Dance/Electronic Recording (for their single ‘On My Knees’) and Best Dance/Electronic Music Album (for last year’s ‘Surrender’, which the aforementioned single is taken from). Notably, it was another ‘Surrender’ single – ‘Alive’ – that earned the group their first Grammy win at this year’s ceremony.

That single won them the Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Recording. They’d been nominated for the same award in 2020 (for ‘Underwater’), while their third album, ‘Solace’, was up for the 2020 Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album.


On social media, RÜFÜS DU SOL said of their two nominations for next year’s Grammys: “So stoked! Shout out to all the nominees – we’re in some great company!”

With their latest nod for Best Dance/Electronic Recording, RÜFÜS DU SOL are up against Beyoncé (who’s nominated for her ‘Renaissance’ single ‘Break My Soul’), Bonobo (‘Rosewood’), Diplo and Miguel (‘Don’t Forget My Love’), David Guetta and Bebe Rexha (‘I’m Good’), and Kaytranada and H.E.R. (‘Intimidated’).

Very similar is the list of nominees for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album: alongside RÜFÜS DU SOL’s nod for ‘Surrender’, Beyoncé has been nominated for ‘Renaissance’, Bonobo for ‘Fragments’, and Diplo for his self-titled album. ODESZA has also been nominated, earning a nod for their fourth album, ‘The Last Goodbye’.
