The newest LP by Chicago Artist and Sooper Records Co-Founder NNAMDÏ.
NNAMDÏ is “Mind Blowing”
One of the “Most Exciting New Acts In Music Right Now.”
NNAMDÏ has “...a broad appetite and staggering musical proficiency.”
-The New Yorker
"The Chicago singer and multi-instrumentalist leaps fearlessly between voices and sounds. His constant dissatisfaction leaves no question that his true colors are loud and clashing."
"A categorically unclassifiable record…"
“A visionary, vigorous new album”
“Only an artist with NNAMDÏ’s absurd range could change gears so quickly from one song to the next, inspecting each different emotion in turn and relaying their precise colors in detail.”
“One of the year’s most thrilling albums…”
“...Nnamdi’s music has gotten love from Moses Sumney, Neko Case, and Jamila Woods, so what are you waiting for?”
"Nnamdi Ogbonnaya is about to blow up."
“You’ve never heard music like this, and you never will again.”
The “genre-defying experimental Chicago artist... can tap into dizzying ethereal planes.”
NNAMDÏ’s “playful, limitless approach to songwriting quickly made him a mainstay in the Chicago DIY scene and now, with BRAT, NNAMDÏ is continuing to secure his place as indie-rock’s favourite oddball.”
“...absolutely blown away with his talent & his unique voice.”
"...think hybrids of indie rock, gospel, and rap…”
-CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
"...a sensational synthesis of genres that come together in the service of something truly special."
“A major work from a wildly talented new artist...”
“Ogbonnaya brings to BRAT a sincerity that wasn’t always present on previous releases”
"Top 10 New Songs."
-LONDON IN STEREO
"Nnamdi Ogbonnaya has had the career arc of a continually unpredictable hip-hop figure like Kanye West, if Kanye had gradually transitioned from being one of the most prolific math rock drummers in his local Chicago scene to an abstract hip-hop mogul…"
“There’s no doubt that it’s ambitious, but does it actually work? Well, that’s a resounding yes.”
