An endearing record of mystery and wonder, deftly inheriting elements from a wide selection of genres that amalgamate to create a category of its own.

Lost Girls Bat for Lashes

Album artwork of 'Græ' by Moses Sumney

Græ Moses Sumney

Emotionally vulnerable and creatively restless. The record plays out like a prolonged stream of consciousness, yet every aspect seems carefully constructed.
