Hillside Summer Festival 2018
July 13 - 15
A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, RHYE find humanity in musicality. Shrouded in mystery, the group first surfaced setting the Internet abuzz with ambiguous imagery, sophisticatedly sensual music videos, and that distinctive falsetto. Following the runaway online success of two initial singles, the critically acclaimed debut album Woman (Loma Vista Recordings) was released in 2013 and lauded by critics from Pitchfork ("Best New Album") to The Guardian to New York Times.
Gifted songwriting, breathtaking vocals and deft instrumental arrangements combine to create an intoxicating blend of R&B influenced, deeply emotive music making the album a staple for provoking intimate moments.
Since the release of Woman, RHYE has relentlessly toured to establish a devoted global fanbase and enrapture crowds in theaters and at festivals worldwide including riveting sets at Coachella and Pitchfork Paris amongst many others.
Originally a duo conceived in the studio, RHYE has transformed into a collective led by vocalist and producer Milosh and elevated by a cast of accomplished multi-instrumentalists. As the band began writing new material, the expansive live show indelibly impacted the music for their second full-length album Blood, due for release February 2nd, 2018, resulting in a warmer, more organic sound. It's a new beginning and a new musical experience. It's RHYE.
