Sounds of Summer: Rhye

Rhye: Woman

I’m a fool for that shake in your thighs
I’m a fool for that sound in your sighs
I’m a fool for your belly
I’m a fool for you love

I wanna make this plain
Oh, I know your faded
Mm, but stay, don’t close your eyes
I wanna make this plain
Oh, I know your faded
Mm, but stay, don’t close your eyes

I’ll admit that Rhye had me going from the opening notes of “Open,” the song you see excerpted above, but when I got down deeper into the honesty of the lyrics and the simplicity of the soul music this Canadian and Danish duo who are currently based in LA.  For me, Rhye takes the best parts of R&B and soul, mixes it with a bit of down-tempo house and creates a sound that at once reminds me of the West Coast, but also something a bit more cinematic.  It’s on heavy rotation lately, and if you have Spotify, give it a try via the player below or this link.

What are you listening to lately?  Would love your recommendations!
