Watch Moses Sumney’s Live, One-take Performance of “Rank & File”

Moses Sumney is so much more than a talented artist and that fact is solidified by his latest visual for a live rendition of “Rank & File.” Building a supporting track from scratch on a loop machine, the singer and musician goes full-out music matter specialist with claps, snaps, military counts and warped voice effects for the backdrop before later adding his richly perfect vocals in verses. The blissfully dreamy energy of Moses’ Paris-set, one-take performance surrenders only to the sobering reality lamented in the lyrics. Still, the live, Colin Solal Cardo-directed “Rank & File” visual is stirring, intense and absolutely undeniable. Watch above and listen to Sumney’s Black in Deep Red, 2014 EP.
