Rhye has finally released its long-awaited sophomore album Blood, the follow-up to 2013's Woman. The material for the full-length record came together over the past two years and shows the alt-R&B group's gentle sound evolving from quiet bedroom jams to decadent performance art. All the while, the music is still covered by heavy layers of intimacy to keep listeners aroused. In a recent interview with Uproxx, Michael Milosh explained the gradual shift in focus.
"The amount of touring that I’ve done caused me to rethink how I want to write the songs,” he said. “I don’t want to be scrambling to figure out how to convert something that uses a lot of soft synths and editing techniques that are used to do some rhymical things. So, I really wanted this record to be a link to the live sound.”
Stream the entire album now via Spotify and Apple Music.
