Description

'The Pale Queen' (out 4th October) marks the return of London-based Canadian producer, singer and songwriter . This release follows the phenomenal debut 'Reverie' which received support from the likes of Benji B (BBC Radio 1), Toddla T (BBCC1Xtra), Lauren Laverne (BBC 6Music), Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music), Garth Trinidad (KCRW), Nemone (BBC 6Music) The Independent, Clash and Dummy. "With all my tracks, I start with a beat and a melody and the lyrics will come once the music feels right", Rhi (AKA Rhiannon Bouvier) says of 'The Pale Queen'. As the production simmers with hip-hop influences driven with bass heavy beats, Rhi creates a space for herself to evolve, both lyrically and musically, exposing each track as more honest and open than the last; "When I listen to 'Reverie' now, it feels like I'm listening to an earlier version of myself", she admits. Alongside producers like Noah Shebib aka '40' for his part in Drakes 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late', and Burial's emotionally intelligent and atmospheric creations, Rhi has previously cited Arca for his production on FKA Twigs 'EP2' as playing an instrumental part in inspiring her self-produced releases. "The music I listen to does of course influence me, especially in terms of my production." Rhi explains, "I've been listening to a lot of alternative rap and hip-hop since my last release - particularly from the UK scene - and other styles such as chill-hop, trap and phonk as well as lots of beat and bass driven music. I try not to be too deliberate with a song, or too focussed on nailing a particular style I just let it come naturally"
