Published Oct 04, 2010Rye Rye has technically been a signee on M.I.A.'s N.E.E.T. Recordings for some time, although her debut album Go! Pop! Bang! never surfaced in the spring of 2009 as it was supposed to. Instead, the Baltimore-based 19-year-old shelved the record to have a baby. Now, the LP will finally see release this January and we're getting a little taste.
"Sunshine" is the first leak from the album, and features M.I.A. singing the chorus. Unlike Rye Rye's club-banging past, "Sunshine" is minimal and melodic, suggesting a plethora of directions this album could go in. Fortunately, one thing it's not is boring.
