Rhye have returned with two brand new tracks, four years after the duo’s beautiful and gorgeously sensual debut album Woman. “Please” and “Summer Days,” while both unmistakably belonging to the signature Rhye style of deep rooted basslines and Mike Milosh’s breathy, androgynous vocals, they vary in tone, the former an emotional ballad and the latter a lighter, yet more complex track with undertones of psych, jazz, and pop. Though “Summer Days” is the first to sound almost completely uninhibited and carefree in Rhye’s stunning repertoire, you can tell there’s an aura of mystery about them, one that you makes you almost wish you will never fully understand – being within the folds of it remains far too addicting.
Listen to “Please” below. “Summer Days” is now on Spotify and Apple Music.
