Rhye's 'Woman' Review: New Electronic Album Is 'Dreamy'

Posted: Updated:

Rhye, "Woman" (Innovate Leisure/Loma Vista)

The definition of Rhye: the electronic Sade.

Rhye, the new duo made up of musicians Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal, channel the veteran soul singer on their debut, "Woman." The album is full of smooth and soothing vocals on top of beats that are dreamy and dance-y. The 10-track set is electronic-flavored silky R&B and plays like a warm jazz session, as Milosh sings softly about love and life. He kind of sounds like a lady. And we love it.

Rhye's sound also echoes Quadron, another duo where Danish-based Hannibal works as producer and vocalist Coco O. is front and center.

It's hard to resist "Woman," especially songs like "Last Dance," which is both bold and jamming with lyrics like: "Tell me lies and lullabies, but don't tell me to change."

This here is a winner.
