Listen to Moses Sumney’s New Song, ‘Lonely World’

I saw Moses Sumney for the first time in 2013, it was way before Pitchfork or Rolling Stone were mentioning him, he was opening for the fabulous trio KING, and I knew I would hear about him again. And this is obviously the case, his elastic, soulful and emotional vocals, his looping techniques, his layers of self-harmonies, finger clapping, and hummed melodies couldn’t go unnoticed, the guy could harmonize with anything, himself included, he is a one-man-a-cappella vocal choral, and his songs are as pure as they are ethereal. I once saw him covering Radiohead’s ‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggio’ with indie band Kan Wakan and it was fantastic. So fantastic that the video I shot received a massive numbers of views and Youtube asked me to remove it for copyright reasons?? Moses managed to marry many things in his songs, and he does it in the most natural way, and live, even with a voice and a guitar, the result is extremely rich, part indie pop, part jazz, wrapped into tons of soul and a slight, almost imperceptible, touch of African roots.

He has shared a new song called ‘Lonely World’, which sounds like Radiohead meets soul meets indie rock, with Moses’ silky falsetto vocals and a emotion slowly growing throughout the tune. It starts with a vast R&B vibe but it becomes something else, adventurous, eerie and poignant with even jazz-y elements and voices going higher and higher in a sort of cathartic, Radiohead-ish and liberating awesomeness.

The song is from Moses’ upcoming ‘Lamentations’ EP, which will be self-released on September 30th, it features Thundercat on bass, Ian Chang on drums, Tosin Abasi, Joshua Willing Halpern on guitar, the production is from Kan Wakan’s Gueorgui Linev, and the strange video which comes with the song, was directed by Sam Cannon.
