Rhye – “The Fall”

homepage_large.f71966d8Rhye is the musical collaboration of musicians and singers Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal. Their music is soft, sensual, and incredibly moving. There’s a smooth, almost delicate composition to singer Mike Milosh’s voice, one that many have described to be almost feminine. However, I don’t hear that similarity all too much. In fact, I associate it with the type of masculine falsetto that has dominated in indie music for some time. There’s just this almost untouchable quality to Rhye’s music, one that separates it from the harshness of reality. “The Fall” really sums up their unique sound for the most part, and is really quite powerful. Mike Milosh’s voice is refined, subtle, and soft, but also quite passionate, and you’re able to create your own meaning. That’s really what Milosh and Hannibal wanted to do in the long run. “The Fall” is from Rhye’s debut album Woman, which was released last year.
