It’s not often that a song stops you in your tracks, forcing you to ‘X’ out of whatever article you’re skimming and engage with music the old-fashioned way — with ears open and mind engaged. The latest single from California singer-songwriter Moses Sumney, “Worth It”, is one of those rare songs that demands our full attention. Sumney’s voice first blew us away when we caught him at Eaux Claires a couple weeks back, but here it sounds almost otherworldly, the pitch shifting and warping like the bodies in the accompanying music video.
Filmed by Allie Avital, who’s previously worked with Chairlift and Hundred Waters, the video provides an appropriately minimalist — and appropriately sexy — counterpart to “Worth It”. Watch it below, and make sure Moses Sumney stays on your radar in the near and distant future.
