100% DIY Magazine Gender, genre and race are deconstructed one by one, challenging the listener while soothing them with the balm of melody, lulling them into comfort before pulling out the theatrics.
90% Paste Magazine Instead, he has taken an omnivorous approach to his music, absorbing folk, soul, jazz, ambient and classical music into his unique sound.
90% Louder than war
85% The Line of Best Fit Moses Sumney’s 2017 debut – the striking, entrancing Aromanticism – was a concept album about lovelessness that sounded absolutely gorgeous.
83% Gaffa (Sweden)
80% Exclaim! Music Harmony Published Mar 04, 2020 8 Most music tends to focus on life's milestones — the first kiss, the epic heartbreak, and other brief, significant moments.
80% The Guardian If Part One (released in February) came out bold, with explorations of virility and vulnerability, soaring orchestral arrangements, trombones and songs asking “am I just your Friday dick?”, Part Two slackens only slightly.
80% No Ripcord The album’s opening song, insula, has Selasi discussing isolation, explaining the Latin root and telling us that it directly means island.
70% Loud & Quiet THANK YOU.“Isolation comes from ‘isole’, which means island.” As timing goes, the opener to Moses Sumney’s second album couldn’t have been any more contextual.
