Rhye: Open + The Fall

Danish songwriter-producer Robin Hannibal (right) of Quadron and Boom Clap Bachelors has many irons in the fire: his latest collaborator, Canadian singer-songwriter-musician-producer Michael Milosh aka Milosh makes up the other half of Rhye whose debut full-length album 'Woman' was released this week.

The  L.A. based duo is getting a lot of buzz lately in part due to the videos that accompany the tracks "Open" and "The Fall".  The director is Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen, nephew of Dogme 95 Collective co-founder Søren Kragh-Jacobsen whose acclaimed film career in Denmark stretches back to the 1970s.  Daniel's cinematic DNA is evident in his output so far; however, he has also managed to add a very personal touch to the work which includes clips made for Quadron, Boom Clap Bachelors, When Saints Go Machine, and more.  He will be graduating from American Film Institute in L.A. this summer.

Rhye will be performing at SXSW in Austin March 14 and 15, and has nine North American dates scheduled for April, starting with a (sold out) L.A. gig April 1 at the newer intimate venue The Masonic Lodge at legendary Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
