“Ooh, make love to me, one more time before you go away.” And with just the first sentence, Rhye has already put a spell on us. The jazzy and soulful “The Fall” is the perfect late night soundtrack for seduction, especially with the silky Sade-like vocals that flow effortlessly like a hillside stream and seem to melt the minute they hit your ears. The track’s general tone, including the soft looping piano and subtle drum machine beats, somewhat remind of the ambient chill of Thom Yorke‘s Eraser and the enticing pop balladry of Jessie Ware‘s Devotion. Below check out “The Fall” and another stunner “Open,” that I could not stop listening to when it was first released earlier in the year.
“The Fall” is part of an EP of the same name scheduled to drop October 9th via Innovative Leisure/Seven Four.
