Moses Sumney "Cut Me"

Moses Sumney has released a new music video for “Cut Me,” is the second video directed by Sumney himself, following previous release “Virile.” The visual stars Emara Jackson, Malachi Middleton, and Sumney as discarded clinic patients who troll an otherwise abandoned hospital. “Cut Me” is off Part 2 of of Sumney’s double album græ, out May 15th via Jagjaguwar.

Part One of Moses Sumney’s double album græ is now available digitally via Jagjaguwar Records. The album is described as a conceptual patchwork about greyness and expands upon the sonic universe built in Sumney’s debut LP Aromanticism and subsequent EP Black In Deep Red, 2014. The album includes previous singles “Cut Me,” “Virile,” “Polly,” and “Conveyor” (which Sumney debuted in the form of a Moog Sound Lab session) and will be followed by Part Two as well as a physical release on May 15th. The album includes collaborations with a diverse array of contributors and is Sumney’s first work to be written in his new home of Asheville, North Carolina.

Moses Sumney evades definition as an act of duty: technicolor videos and monochrome clothes; Art Rock and Black Classical; blowing into Fashion Week from a small town in North Carolina; seemingly infinite collaborators, but only one staggering voice. A young life spent betwixt Southern California and Accra, Ghana – not so much rootless as an epyphite, an air plant. The scale is cinematic but the moves are precise deeds of art and stewardship. Sumney’s new, generous double album, græ, is an assertion that the undefinable still exists and dwelling in it is an act of resistance.
