Rhye is back.

The Los Angeles-based duo returned Friday with two new songs, "Please" and "Summer Days," their first in four years, following their debut full-length Woman, which was one of Variance's Best Albums of 2013.

The new tracks are a preview of the pair's upcoming second album, which will apparently mark a noticeable shift, influenced by their evolving live show.

As singer Mike Milosh explains, it's a "little more psychedelic." He adds: "I wanted to bring that to the second record. I really wanted to incorporate much more soulful and earthy colors. It had to be all live percussion and piano. The human intimacy had to come through the actual instrumentation on this record. 'Please' is the stepping stone to where we're headed."

The songs arrive as Rhye has a number of upcoming shows in Europe and Asia.
