'silhouette'

an ep by Nobi

The tri cities native procures an interlude EP exploring new sounds and industrial textures that contain a resounding chaotic dissonance. Teaming up with Evngeo on the opener "Cloth of a King," Nobi sets the tone for a concise project hyper focused on high energy cadences over hard hitting instrumentals.

'fulminate.' 

fulminate: (v) to explode or express extreme protest

Based on the experiences of growing up at odds with the system, 'fulminate.' is a testament to the challenges of institutionalized racism, and speaks to a society that capitalizes on oppression for the betterment of few. Debuting in June and now available on vinyl, Nobi's first solo record takes a bold step forward in defining the role of the talented artist and poet.

"With a title like "Jenny Durkan, Resign in Disgrace", it's pretty obvious Seattle artist Left at London (real name: Nat Puff) does not mince words. And in the verses of today's Song of the Day, she teams up with guest rapper Nobi to sing:

Fuck you,
and the slavers that you work for
This song’s
For the people you killed"
