Rhye - 'Woman'

As anaemic as a hipster Emeli Sandé

Rhye - 'Woman'

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 18, 2013
  • Label: Polydor
5 / 10 The Brit Awards were rightly criticised for being as edgy as a roundabout, but there are many ‘alternative’ artists who are every bit as anaemic as Emeli Sandé. ‘Woman’ by Canadian/Danish duo Rhye has all the hallmarks of a hipster essential (black’n’white artwork, R&B influences) but the majority of it could just as easily appeal to those who buy Downton Abbey box-sets. Mike Milosh possesses a remarkable voice, notably on ‘The Fall’, but the most interesting thing about it is that it comes from someone with an Adam’s apple. The monotone pace is lifted by the sprightly ‘3 Days’, but ultimately ‘Woman’ is cloyingly pedestrian.
