The Physics are one of the many talented indie hip hop crews out of Seattle, and after releasing two albums in the past two years, they haven’t become complacent as they are getting set to release Digital Wildlife. “Am I Crazy?” is the first single off the upcoming LP, and right off the back, the production really builds a smooth, soulful soundscape.
After almost a minute build up, we hear Thig Nat enter with a soulful verse utilizing an almost melancholy hook, instead of a traditional hip hop verse. If this track is any indication, this album will be steeped in a mix of soulful and electronic influences along with hip hop.
‘Digital Wildlife’ is about the relationship between digital and analog. Today, our lives take place so much within the digital domain, but our humanness rears itself throughout. The production and recording follow the same theme: we’re mixing electronic sounds and analog production elements, and we’re recording the album digitally, later to be bounced to analog tape. – The Physics
