Rhye’s exquisite sophomore album finds singer/songwriter Mike Milosh exploring band-oriented arrangements. Inspired by the tour following his first album, Woman—in which an organist, string players, and a brass and rhythm section joined him on stage—Milosh sought to bring some of that live energy to Blood. He tapped seasoned producers and songwriters (Thomas Bartlett, Justin Parker) and guest instrumentalists (Tamar Osborn, Nate Mercereau) to add subtle doses of warmth and texture (the punctuating horns on “Feel Your Weight,” the plucky strings on “Taste"). Still, though, nothing can compete with Milosh’s soul-stirring soprano, which soars over the instrumentation like a bird above clouds. – Rhye/Apple Music

“Rhye remains very much the same, and Bloodpicks up where Woman left off: the tempos slow, the decibels soft, the heft negligible. Funk guitars twist like orchids’ tendrils. Disco basslines rarely rise above a muted thump. Textures—a close-miked hi-hat, the rustling hammers of a Rhodes keyboard—are as vivid as fingernails scraping raw silk. The mood is set with grace and ease.” – Pitchfork

“As an emblem of what Milosh is capable of – magnetic vocals, unshakable melodies, arrangements that are both delicate and robust – it’s a triumph.” – NME
