Smoothed out soul from new hype Rhye and remixer of the moment Ryan Hemsworth

Ryan Hemsworth has become the go to guy for emotive post dubstep-ery, so it's no surprise that he's been enlisted to sprinkle some magic over new vocal hype Rhye. He adds the requisite harp plucks, swooning moogs and vaguely RnBish beats, and it works pretty well with Rhye's Sade style delivery, like a sprinkling of chocolate on a Starbucks latte. Ultimately it's pleasant enough but does anyone really love this? Like really? It feels a little bit focus group trip hop to these jaded ears. Coming to a mortgage advert near you any day now...
