Rhye shares visuals for Tensnake’s remix of ‘Count To Five’ & Poolside’s ‘Feel Your Weight’
Rhye shares reworks by Tensnake, Jacques Greene, Poolside, Mansionair and Jeff Samuel from their forthcoming Blood Remixed album (due November 16th). The accompanying visuals for these re-imaginations of songs from their sophomore album continue the late night Berlin club narrative established by RY X’s “Waste” last month.
Drawing from Rhye and creative partner Genevieve Medow Jenkins’ shared experience living in Berlin and conceptualized / directed by Jenkins, the remix visuals are expressions in movement that mimic the sound and feeling of each track. Tensnake’s “Count To Five” follows the dancer Bounce (the girl with the blue hair) and depicts her interactions with other characters. Poolside’s “Feel Your Weight” visual cuts to two male dancers at the rave and intermixes solo and interactive dances.
The 14-track Blood Remixed album includes additional re-imaginations by Washed Out, Tensnake, Channel Tres, and more. Mike Milosh’s resilient yet purposefully understated take on R&B stretches beyond the confines of any genre with the remixes, giving listeners the opportunity to hear Blood from a new perspective.
Rhye’s sophomore album Blood was released earlier this year to immense praise, with The Guardian calling it a “perfectly judged sepulchral take on R&B” and NME proclaimed to be a “triumph.” Milosh’s new body of work was created after parting ways with producer Robin Hannibal and a breakup with his ex-wife, Alexa Nikolas. Blood sees the rebirth of Rhye and Milosh coming into himself fully-formed while staying true to what NPR says is the “reserved, understated and brilliant soul” of the project.
Rhye recently completed a West Coast run of tour dates and is heading off to Asia later this month.
