Debut Album Wishes Out This Friday
Rhodes will release his anticipated debut album Wishes this Friday. Three of the brooding, slow-build songs that featured on Rhodes’ early EPs appear on the new album, as well as ‘Breathe’, and the upbeat ‘Turning Back Around’.
Rhodes’ first EPs introduced listeners to the haunting duality at the core of his music: songs and sound scapes that are both incredibly fragile and hugely powerful.
Close Your Eyes Single Out Now
Rhodes says that Close Your Eye is about his fear of performing. “I wanted to make this a little more ambiguous, so I changed it to the third person and made it more about me talking to somebody else – when really it’s me talking to myself.”

Already compared to artists as diverse as Jeff Buckley and Adele. The Wishes album is written entirely by Rhodes and co-produced by Rhodes and his long-term collaborator James Kenosha, with additional production by Drake producer Nineteen85.
