Rhye - Open
Look, I posted the video for this song a couple weeks ago after falling hard for its utter sultry perfection, but I need to post it again, plain - unadorned by visuals. I bought the gorgeous 12” single from Innovative Leisure, and simply can’t stop listening to it. One thing I realized after playing it several times in my living room for different people: the video is distracting in its brazen NSFW-ness. Hot as hell, to be sure, but it honestly detracts from what is, in my opinion, one of the best songs of the year; an absolutely perfect piece of songwriting.
My first single.
