Rhye // Open
We don’t know many facts about Rhye but, why would you want to know them? So far we’ve just heard “Open” from the possibly European/possibly American duo (who are possibly just a single person as well), but we’re infatuated. And judging by “Open”, Rhye is too – it’s insatiably lusty, but in such a refined and well-worded way, and the whole thing just sounds so well balanced, yet packed with emotion; like a more sexually-preoccupied Beach House or a more pop-orientated version of The xx. And if those comparisons haven’t turned you on, then you must be asexual.
You can bag the 12” EP for a bit of hard-earned cash here courtesy of Los Angeles based label Innovative Leisure, or download the far more soulless version from iTunes.
