Last Gang is excited to announce the signing of Rhye and the release
of the new tracks: “Please” & “Summer Days.”
Following up 2013’s critically exalted Woman, “Please” heralds their return. Merging a natural beat and muted piano, the track builds into a climactic lyrical plea that’s both entrancing and explosive. Meanwhile, the clip brings the seductive side of Rhye to life in black-and-white via vivid visuals.
About the song, frontman Milosh comments: “Because we play live so much, we’ve built this show that’s somewhat different from Woman. It’s a little more psychedelic. I wanted to bring that to the second record. I really wanted to incorporate much more soulful and earthy colors. It had to be all live percussion and piano. The human intimacy had to come through the actual instrumentation on this record. ‘Please’ is the stepping stone to where we’re headed.”
A little background: Rhye has over 100 million streams on their debut album Woman — which was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize. Rhye also recently collaborated with Bonobo on his recent MIGRATION record on the track “Break Apart.”. Additionally, Rhye has toured worldwide and performed the likes of Coachella, Pitchfork Fest, NOS Alive and has had sold out shows recently in Toronto at Danforth Music Hall as well as Massey Hall.
