Rhi, aka Rhiannon Bouvier, finds influence in electronic fields near and far. Experimenting with gothic sound beds and woozy hip hop beats, she pushes electronic frontiers by melding lo-fi effects and contorting her own vocals as part of honing a sophisticated, minimal style.
Her music has been strongly influenced by the sounds that have surrounded her from a young age: minor keys, romantic composers, her mother's piano playing; it was important to Rhi that she was able to find music that she connected with along the way. Admiring the music of producers such as Arca, who's collaborations with FKA Twigs on her 'EP2' were one of the biggest inspirations behind her new outfit, Rhi also cites Noah Shebib aka '40' for his part in Drakes 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late' as holding a big influence on 'Reverie'.
Rhi began writing the tracks which would make up her debut album in late 2015. Written about being comfortable in your own thoughts and dreams, Rhi explains: "The lyrics are dreamy, fantastical and sometimes confessional and explore how you can be honest with yourself". Exploring themes of love, loss, reality and existence, Rhi creates chilled beats, which range in style from bass music to hip hop and R&B to lo-fi. Revealing more on why her upcoming project is personal to her, she explains: "I feel that music is a way to express myself with no limits, and I always go into it feeling complete freedom".
