Nashville hip-hop artist nobigdyl. has released SOLAR, his second full-length album and first on Capitol CMG. Out today, SOLAR features 12 tracks that explore his journey from darkness into the light. Lead singles “enemies?,” twenty eighteen.,” and “psycho heart!” have all garnered praise from outlets such as NYLON Magazine, Ebro Darden on Beats 1, and the Nashville Scene.
The Nashville Scene notes the album's fluid nature saying, "The tracks on SOLAR alternate freely among a variety of styles. The opening tandem of “anime” and “block me back” bounces along on skeletal grooves that fall in line with contemporary hip-hop trends. But Phillips sounds equally at home rhyming over a flamenco-laced acoustic hook (“bad motives”); dense, swirling dream pop (“psycho heart!”); or an atmospheric soundscape so hazy and weightless it lingers like mist from a nearby waterfall (“shadow”)."
SOLAR showcases production from Shaun Lopez (French Montana), Sam Farrar (Maroon 5), 1995, and Grammy Award winner Dirty Rice. The album features artists including John Givez, Medisin, Weatherman, Jesstaylo & Sarah Juers, and fellow indie tribe member WHATUPRG. Following the release of SOLAR, nobigdyl. will hold album release shows in Nashville, Atlanta, Jacksonville, and Memphis.
