Rhodes is a name steeped in history.
A Greek island, it features prominently in mythology, in classical literature - little wonder then, then an aspiring songwriter from England decided to use this title.
Working with Noah & The Whale frontman Charlie Fink, the pair gradually brought Rhoses' debut EP into view. 'Raise Your Love' is set to be released on October 28th, with each of the four tracks bristling with emotion.
Lead track 'Run' is available to stream online, with its gentle acoustic picking entrancing from the off. With his warm voice and open style, Rhodes seems perfect for those late-Summer / early-Autumn days of reflection and contemplation.
The video for the track is shot on a beach, and juxtaposes and old man peering at the scene with a pair of lovers running towards one another.
Watch it now.
