Release Date: 22nd September 2017
The debut LP via Jagjaguwar from the LA songwriter who emerged on the scene in 2014 and has ridden a wave of word-of-mouth praise ever since with his hushed recordings and dynamic live performances. Sumney makes future music that transmogrifies classic tropes like moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz gems. His striking falsetto voice is truly stunning and with the addition of cleverly worked varied arrangements of strings acoustics and electronics his music makes you sit up and take notice. Aromanticism is a concept album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape - It seeks to interrogate the social constructions around romance. Anyone who is a fan of anything from Sampha and Nick Hakim to Jamila Woods Kelela and Solange so make sure this is heard!
