If there is a heaven, or any kind of future otherworld, I’m pretty sure Moses Sumney’s gorgeous and comforting voice is what carries you into this next life. Particularly his new track, “Quarrel,” which you can listen to below.

Every little bit of this song’s epic, lush soundscape is fluid — as a myriad of sounds and textures meld and flow into one another with unbelievable ease. It’s a beautiful sonic journey that embarks with Sumney’s ethereal falsettos as your peaceful guide. Then before you know it, you’re traveling to different musical dimensions at a warp speed that also somehow feels like forever. Just trust me — I have not a clue how — but it does.

Flying from a Gospel-woven tapestry of harp stylings to deep sea island vibes, the track then halts abruptly about four minutes in. From there, you’re dropped into a new universe of spiraling, electric synth — only then to gracefully float out into an impeccably beautiful piano solo.

If you’ve reached this peaceful destination and are in need of other musical journeys, rejoice in the knowledge that more tunes await via Sumney’s new upcoming album, Aromanticism, which will be available on September 22nd via Jagjaguwar. Also, you have a chance to see Sumney this fall when he performs at First Unitarian Church on October 12th. Find info on the show here, and listen to “Quarrel” below.
