Internet favourite and R&B genius.
March 04, 2019
Rhye started as a casual side project by Mike Milosh in 2013, but within months his debut album, Woman, became one of the most celebrated albums of the year on both the internet and in the pages of tastemaker media outlets like The Guardian and The New York Times. 'Open', the lead track of album, amassed over 45 million Spotify streams.
In its early stages of international fame, the identity of Rhye was a subject of furious and passionate internet enquiry, the band finally revealing it had started as a collaboration between Canadian vocalist and producer Milosh and Dutch producer Robin Hannibal, although Hannibal dropped out of the band quite early on, leaving Milosh to work with a collection of people, but spearheading the process.
Rhye's latest release Blood, continues along the same sonic lines as Woman, with its sexy, androgynous and expansive vocals, analog synths and emotionally charged piano keys.
