It's been nearly five years since Rhye's debut Woman entranced listeners with its blend of airy dream pop, chilled electronics, sensuous R&B and singer-songwriter candor. Initially conceived as a one-off collaboration with silky singer Mike Milosh and producer Robin Hannibal, the project has since evolved into a full-fledged band. Last summer, Rhye began issuing new material, including their most recent single "Count to Five," as well as collaborating with like-minded musicians like Bonobo and Sylvan Esso. "We've spent the last few years on the road translating the Woman album from a bedroom project into a full live experience," Milosh says in a press release. "With Blood, it's been the opposite process; the music and sounds were really born out of the live environment and are built for performance."
