Sound it Out # 61: Rhye - “Open” (free MP3)
Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal never meant to form a band. Milosh traveled from his native Canada to Copenhagen to mix a track for Hannibal’s band Quadron, and the two musicians discovered an affinity for making sweet music together. Rhye is all about love: not the unrequited or yearning kind (which seems to make for more natural artistic fodder), but the life-changing mutual stuff. Rhye should be on everyone’s makeout playlist.
“Open” is my favorite from Rhye’s debut album Woman. It’s a sexy song - Milosh’s androgynous vocals swirl with a layers of intoxicating beats. Download it below.
