Song of the Week #31: Moses Sumney - Polly

Updated: Dec 25, 2019

Moses Sumney is back with this beautifully bittersweet song. Described in Pitchfork as masochistic, Polly is an ode to the paradox of despairing in desire. The rhythmic flow of the vocals work effortlessly in tandem with the gently picked guitar, his signature falsetto trickles through like water and the overall effect is tantalisingly good.

N.B. The lyric video above is so raw and charged with emotion. Watching the tears roll down his face as the song progresses feels intensely intimate in a beautiful way, as he shares it all with us.
