Rhye first sur­faced in 2013 with the crit­i­cally ex­alted de­but al­bum Woman. Un­der the cover of boom­ing pi­ano, ana­log synths, nat­u­ral per­cus­sion, and heav­enly vo­cals, the group quickly and qui­etly be­came a phe­nom­e­non gar­ner­ing ac­claim from Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitch­fork who dubbed it “Best New Al­bum”. In their much-an­tic­i­pated new al­bum, Rhye re­turns with “Blood”, a deeply per­sonal record of hope and ex­pe­ri­ence. If Woman served as an ethe­real, ro­man­tic ser­e­nade, Blood is a cathar­tic, purga­tive re­sponse to what hap­pens when a re­la­tion­ship dis­solves. It’s a col­lec­tion of songs about the trans­for­ma­tion that ar­rives in the af­ter­math of one re­la­tion­ship end­ing and an­other be­gin­ning. In pick­ing your­self up and find­ing joy again. It’s phys­i­cal sound­ing; qui­etly in­tense; earthy, even. More than that though, it’s a hu­man record, of hu­man emo­tion, that stands out at a time when mu­sic feels in­creas­ingly syn­thetic. No won­der he called it “Blood” — this is mu­sic to sus­tain you. Let’s step into the sea­son of fall­ing love with Rhye to­gether.
