On breezy days, I like to spread my wings and soar through the clouds, but like Moses Sumney sings in this tune Plastic, “My wings are made of plastic.” They’re fragile–sometimes unreliable. They always require a little faith to work.
I don’t know Sumney personally, but he seems to be a thoughtful singer/songwriter who is both simple and eccentric. His music is full of feeling, and he doesn’t appear to be limited to a specific genre but could invoke whatever style necessary to properly frame a song. His approach to singing puts me in the mind of Stevie Wonder. At every turn, you’re presented with interesting, technically sound and unrestricted vocalizations that bring greater life to wonderfully crafted lyrics.
Check out his live performance of Plastic performed for Sofar (Songs from a room) Music.
