Combining hushed falsettos, minimal arrangements, and melancholy lyrics, LA duo Rhye's wistful take on smooth R&B is the best thing to happen to the genre since Sade. Robin Hannibal's lush productions are the perfect backdrop for singer Milosh's lovelorn opuses, burning slow and steady as subtle layers of synths and strings boil over into bittersweet choruses laced with relaxed harmonies and guitar work. The duo's cinematic compositions connote the grandeur of the concert hall — a fitting association considering they'll be backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic on one of the stops of their highly anticipated 2014 tour.
Comprised of Canadian singer Milosh and Danish instrumentalist Robin Hannibal, Rhye got their start in 2010, generating serious attention with the mysteriously released singles "Open" and "The Fall." The band’s following grew even more in 2013 with the release of their debut album Woman, a stellar collection of romantic pop songs anchored by Milosh's silky falsetto. Putting together a talented backing band for their busy tour schedule, Rhye's live show has continued to expand with their growing popularity, and will even include a full symphony orchestra as they take the stage with the Los Angeles Philharmonic on their 2014 tour.
