LA-based duo Rhye have announced that they'll be making their debut trip to Australia this October to perform their first ever show in the country in Sydney before appearing at this year's Melbourne Festival.

The group made up of Canadian singer Milosh and Danish instrumentalist Robin Hannibal will hit the stage at the Oxford Art Factory on Thursday 17 October, before travelling to Melbourne to perform at the annual event from 21-22 October.

After releasing their debut album Woman in 2013, Rhye have gone on to perform sell-out shows in the US and Europe and it will give Aussie fans the first chance to see the breathtaking and enigmatic act live on stage.

Tickets for the Sydney performance go on sale at 9am on Monday 10 August — click here for more details.
