On Aromanticism, Sumney makes future music that transmogrifies classic tropes, like moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz gems.
Listen to “Doomed” here:
Following the self-release of his debut cassette EP, Mid-City Island, and 2015's 7", Seeds/Pleas, Sumney has performed around the world alongside forebears like David Byrne, Karen O, Sufjan Stevens, Solange, James Blake and more.
“On a concept album about lovelessness, he creates a cavernous feeling of loneliness using soundscapes similar to those Nigel Godrich explores.” -The Guardian
Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape. It seeks to interrogate the social constructions around romance.
“It's a deliberate, jaw-dropping statement that can leave you both enlightened and empty.”
Moses Sumney -Aromanticism
Aromanticism plows forward into a new, innovative space where Moses reinvents modern day musical expression.
His vocals narrate a personal journey through universal loneliness atop otherworldly compositional backdrops.
Moses embraces technology as he moves into the all too familiar space of love and romance.
