Music News- RHYE today released their much anticipated sophomore album BLOOD via Loma Vista Recordings. BLOOD is available digitally and physically starting today. Limited edition vinyl bundles are available exclusively via the RHYE Shop .
RHYE today also shared a new music video for track "Count To Five". Inspired by dance videos posted in response to the band's music video for "Taste", frontman Milosh cast dancers and recruited local filmmakers from around the globe via Instagram to create the clip's individual shots. Directed by Milosh, the stunning clip was filmed in Berlin, Tokyo, Moscow, Ghana, Joshua Tree National Park, and Los Angeles. Watch the music video below-.
"Shot in 6 different locations around the world, the video for Count to Five celebrates personal expression through the universal language of music and dance," shared Milosh. "We invited each dancer to film in her home environment to honor her own individual experience"
The music video for "Count To Five" was created in collaboration with @georginaleomelody (Berlin), @hfmtoyko and @momocarenri (Tokyo), @dkainmil and @tanyaermolenco (Moscow), @sire_choppenson and @dolly__dove (Ghana), @erinsmurray (Joshua Tree), and @jjaylene (Los Angeles).
BLOOD follows RHYE's debut album Woman , which was released in 2013 to wide acclaim. Critics were quick to praise BLOOD' s previously released songs as "reserved, understated, and brilliant" (NPR Music), "busy but not cluttered, sexy but not serious" (Pitchfork), "soul pop that hits all the high notes" (Wall Street Journal), "delicate, sensuous" (Stereogum), and "music to fall in love to" (Uproxx). Sonically, the album is reflective of the band's evolving live show.
Earlier this week, RHYE kicked off a tour that will visit cities across North America and Europe going into the spring. Tickets for all dates are available for purchase now. See below for a complete schedule and ticket links.
