No band oozes sex and seduction quite like L.A. duo Rhye. Formed by Toronto native Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal of Danish electronic-soul group Quadron, Rhye received much attention in the blogosphere last year upon the release of their first song “Open” and its accompanying music video. The sexy vid (appropriately released last year on Valentine’s day) shows a loop of various partners making love in bed, creating a beautifully intimate three and a half minutes of audio-visual pleasure.
Today the band released a milder music video for the single, but we’re still smitten with the first.
The duo went on to release “The Fall”, another sensual, sex-themed single with an accompanying music video last September. The super smooth first line (“make love to me, one more time before you go away”) combined with their sultry, Sade-like vocals and mixture of strings, looped piano and drum track is completely swoon-worthy.
Rhye’s debut album entitled Woman comes out March 4.
