Rhye - "Open"
So I've loved this band since 2013. They've got a flavor that just pulls me in. Intense and chill and the same time, their mesmerizing beats and soft harmonies lull you into a dreamy trance and hold you chained to the melody.
I've written about them before, check out my first taste here: Song & Soul : Rhye
Rhye is an R&B musical project of Canadian singer Mike Milosh. It originally consisted of him and Danish instrumentalist Robin Hannibal. They released the singles "Open" and "The Fall" online without much detail, which led to speculation about the band. Their debut album, Woman, was released on March 4, 2013. In June 2013, the album was longlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. In 2017, it was reported that Robin Hannibal was no longer a member of Rhye and that the project had evolved into a music collective led by Milosh and focused around the associated live band. Their latest album, Blood, was released on February 2, 2018, and was largely written, produced, and performed by Milosh.
So today, with head bobbing and eyes smiling, I choose Rhye's "Open" as my, keep growing, keep learning, keep searching, song for a, press into the sore spots, change your perception, see the world from a different angle, Monday.
