Song of the Day: Moses Sumney – “Lonely World”


Moses Sumney’s newest single, “Lonely World” welcomes its listeners into a chilling, lo-fi atmosphere like no other, with breathtakingly phenomenal vocals. 

The track includes jazz infusions such as a notable bass collaboration with Thundercat, who also appeared alongside Kendrick Lamar on the Grammy-winning album ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’. Amidst the song his vocal range and lyricism will both shock and soothe you, drawing you into his quietly intense climate: full of warmth and emotional clarity. Currently touring with James Blake, Sumney’s live performance is no exception. Only accompanied by a guitar and a looping pedal he is his very own live band using only what surrounds him.

Sumney’s album Lonely World, recently released on September 27th, has already exceeded expectations and more. With Sumney’s eerie and elastic vocals the listener once again falls in love with the unique experimental soul-funk sound that defines him. Moses Sumney has been creating a quiet buzz in the music industry, grabbing the attention of well-known artists such as Solange and Janelle Monáe. Reminiscent of a modern-day Nick Drake, Moses Sumney brings us into his “Lonely World” and with each moment passing allows us to fall in love with him more and more.
