The debut album Aromanticism by Moses Sumney must be the most intriguing, intricate and mesmerizing album I have heard in a very long time. This is music where you need to sit down, focus and drift away with the lyrics, listening to the unexpected twists and turns in each track. It’s so unexpected, both transparent as well as complex, with Moses taking you by the hand, pulling you into his story, telling you all he knows about love and life. But this doesn’t surprise us, being one of the artists on Solange’s album A Seat at the Table last year and going on tour with James Blake. It’s now it’s time for him to shine by releasing his debut album Aromanticism.
For our SOTD, we chose the song Plastic with its dreamy vibe, the track easily takes you way into a meditative state, longing for that last bit of sunshine before autumn really starts. If you are curious to listen to the rest of the album, which we strongly recommend, be prepared to be surprised by the unique sound, of which Moses Sumney seems to be the master.
