RHODES Compared to Queen

     It only lasts a few seconds, but each time we play “Close Your Eyes,” the thought is that we instead played a classic from Queen. “Close Your Eyes” soon heads in a completely different direction and we resolve not to make the same snap judgement again, but….
     At the start of “Close Your Eyes” by RHODES, the combination of vocal qualities, the key, and the use of a piano reminds us of the start of Queen’s “We Are the Champions.” Both songs are embedded below. Only compare the beginnings of the songs, because “Close Your Eyes” has the power to stand on its own, and it stands strong. 
      RHODES is a singer/songwriter from Hitchin, UK.
