Living in Minneapolis MN, Bobby Rethwish creates music that is defined by dichotomy; beautiful but aggressive, emotional but experimental, catchy but unpredictable. Pairing passionate vocals with otherworldly textures, Rethwish’s music is born out of a love for pop songwriting as well as a desire to turn modern production on its head. On October 22, 2021, Rethwish released his second LP, PERMANENT RAINBOWS, an abstract pop album made in the two months leading up to a breakup and the two months following.
Over the summer of 2021, Rethwish created an original score for Minneapolis dance company Crash Dance Productions. The show has seen two runs at the Southern Theater, the music for which has been released on streaming services as CDP2021. This collaboration led to members of Crash Dance joining Rethwish as members of his live band, creating one of the most unique live experiences in the Twin Cities. Rethwish also produced LA-based pop artist McCall’s EP, On Self-Loathing, as well as her upcoming debut album.
