One of the things that really make me happy is discovering a new band on my own. It's like unearthing some long buried treasure while walking alone on the beach. The experience is more personal and the ownership more intimate. Stornoway, Last Dinosaurs, Alpine, The Drums… these are just some of the bands I happily discovered over the last few years.
Now i can add another band to that list. The Toronto-based duo Rhye. I instantly fell in love with their slow, almost melancholic sound the moment I heard Fall, the new single off their debut album Woman. But what made me really fall in love with them is the hauntingly beautiful Open. It is heart-wrenching in its beauty. And Mike Milosh's androgynous voice is so perfect for the song.
Check out the haunting Open from Rhye.
