Rhi - The Pale QueenTru Thoughts
Canadian singer songwriter and now London resident Rhi is back with her sophomore release. "The Pale Queen" is filled with haunting down tempo soundscapes and raw unabashed lyrics that made her debut "Reverie" such a success. "Plain Jane" is driven by brooding synths and a heavy bottom. Sensual whispers coat the hypnotic throb of "It Was Love". The tempo picks up a notch with the chill-hop flavored "The Tempter". Chilled out electronica combined with soft spoken vocals makes for the perfect sonic marriage. Rhi pulls it off with ease.
