A bit of a change in tempo and genre here, but this is the sound of the faceless electronic duo 'Rhye' hailing from LA. Listeners are left to imagine the girl who is behind the Sade-like, intimate vocals featured on their EP 'Open'. It was a surprise to my ears to hear that the vocalist in question is in fact a man - Mike Milosh, who is joined by Quadron in making up the duo that is Rhye. Both 'Open' and 'The Fall' offer an updated, modern soulful sound that is both moving and addictive; layering whisphery vocals and overwhelming honest and uncomplicated lyrics over calm production reminiscent of The xx.
