EDITORS’ NOTES

"Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape," Moses Sumney stated in a blog post. "It seeks to interrogate the idea that romance is normative and necessary." It’s also a debut album that establishes its author as a very special voice. The exquisite “Quarrel”—all foreboding bass, levitating harp, and trippy soul—is spine-chilling, “Make Out in My Car” glides by suggestively with a chemtrail of flutes, and on the acoustic “Indulge Me,” Sumney is sincere, vulnerable, and quietly devastating.

About Moses Sumney

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Moses Sumney first emerged in 2014, merging rich soul balladry with art-pop, folk, and ambient R&B. The San Bernardino native began playing out in his early twenties, quickly crafting a distinctive style that he augmented in the studio with lush multi-tracked vocal arrangements. His debut EP, 2014's Mid-City Island, yielded the dreamy single "Man on the Moon" and was followed in 2016 by the more acoustic-oriented singles "Seeds" and "Please." As his reputation grew, Sumney began to notch high-profile gigs opening for artists like Solange, James Blake, and David Byrne. In September 2017, Sumney delivered his debut full-length, Afromanticism, an artfully crafted meditation on lovelessness and solitude. ~ Timothy Monger
