The Video - Rhye's "Open"

I'm a fool for that sound in your sighs ...

Sade-tastic! ..... Yap, Sade should've sued this crowd for ripping off her sound to the nth degree!!

It's the beautiful sensuous video for the luscious love song Open, from enigmatic LA duo Rhye.

Oh .. and there's a hotter-than-hell redhead in there! .. What the fuck else could you want?

This, the band's first single, appeared on their acclaimed debut album, Woman.

Although they had previously released a quite naughty video for this single, this second version, which follows a couple’s romantic beach house getaway, features less nudity (sob! sob!), more longing sentiment  (sob! sob!) and a reference to the duo’s video for another song (yap, that's meta motherfucker! ...  sob! sob!)

This, Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen-directed version connects to their video for “The Fall,” in that the themes are the same: love is complicated, doubts are ever-present, it’s hard to stay open, the gnawing feeling of knowing something’s off. It’s not just a thematic thread, either:

The troubled older couple from “The Fall” make a cameo near the end of this video about a younger couple setting up for the same, full-circle.

Says Rhye: If you can’t stay open you’re bound to take the fall. Or maybe something not quite so literal. Or maybe that’s exactly what it is. Or maybe ... yawnnnnn!!!

Anyway, this video and song are pretty damn good.

The vid’s mildly NSFW.
