New Tru Thoughts signing Rhiannon Bouvier – aka Rhi – has just released her hard-hitting, beat-laden first album for the label called ‘Reverie’.

The new record serves up a variety of sonic treats over its hip hop and downtempo backgrounds. It’s a strong album throughout, though a standout is ‘Forever’, where Bouvier’s firm but fragile vocals are somewhat akin to Lou Rhodes with her early Lamb work, the lyrics about a fated connection being really quite special.

Bouvier cites Arca’s production collaborations with FKA Twigs as a particular inspiration for her work on ‘Reverie’, saying: “When I heard FKA Twigs’ ‘EP2’, I thought her voice was beautiful, but the thing I appreciated most about the music was the production. It made me think I’d want to be able to do that, and all of it”.
