When Pitchfork’s main criticism of your EP is that it’s too short, you know you’re doing something right. LA singer-songwriter MOSES SUMNEY’s angelic, electro-folk music is basically faultless. Set to swirling synths and dark, expansive production, Sumney’s voice is intoxicating and brims with emotion, especially in the spaces where his notes linger. Listen to his track ‘Doomed’ and let it sink in. It’s really no wonder Solange wanted to collaborate with him on her 2016 album, A Seat At The Table. Sumney’s long-awaited debut album, Aromanticism, was launched on 22nd September to rave reviews by Pitchfork and The Guardian. Be among the first to hear it live at Laneway 2018.
