New song: Sumie – Moon

By Anjali DasSarma

“Moon” by Sumie is the perfect gentle lunar song. The careful and delicate piano contrasts against the direct and certain vocals. “The whispers of a morning tune/A sister’s lullaby,” Sumie sings. The flow of the song has the perfect amount of ups and downs, an early morning porch swing overlooking a hill. The ease of the vocals are truly unique. Sumie does not try to be anything she’s not, and with that goal in mind, her song is flawless, with a simplicity that calls to mind peace and serenity. There is something so impressive about songs that present this kind of ease. Though they may be easy to listen to, they most certainly aren’t easy to make. Stunning.

‘Moon’ is taken from forthcoming EP ‘Mirou’, out September 13 on Bella Union.
