London MC Loyle Carner delivers his rhymes with an intentional, poetic flow, buffered by warm jazzy production that conjure up 1990s acid-jazz/hip-hop vibes. Carner made his breakthrough debut in the late 2010s with the Mercury Prize-nominated Yesterday’s Gone. His follow up, Not Waving, but Drowning reached number three on the U.K. album chart. The singles I Wonder Why (with Joesef), Yesterday, and Let It Go (with Erick the Architect and FARR) arrived in 2020. Showcasing other skills, Carner and his brother Ryan co-directed the video for Arlo Parks Eugene before he returned with his third album, Hugo, in 2022, his third full-length, which included the Madlib – produced Georgetown. One of the UK’s most dynamic MC’s, Lolye makes his Splendour debut in 2023.
