Massey Hall presents
A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analogue synths, and expansive vocals, Rhye find humanity in musicality. Driven by this approach, the group quietly transformed into a phenomenon with the arrival of their 2013 debut, Woman. The record garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork who dubbed it “Best New Album.” “Open” would concurrently accumulate over 42.9 million Spotify streams, while “The Fall” surpassed 23.7 million. Along the way, they sold out theaters around the globe between standout festival sets at Coachella, Pitchfork, and a highlight concert in Denmark accompanied by a 49-piece all-girls choir.
As the band began writing in 2016, this expansive live show indelibly impacted their second full-length album in 2017. The first single “Please” siphons a gorgeous vocal plea through a kaleidoscope of sparse percussion and piano that’s simultaneously stirring, stark, and sensual. It’s a new musical experience. It’s Rhye.
We welcome Rhye to Massey Hall, performing as part of the Live at Massey Hall Concert and Film Series.
