whilst his striking gossamer falsetto vocal is exceptional in its own right, the intriguing electronic backing provide the perfect complement – subtly seeping into our subconscious to mould it into the album’s own image.

this was conceived as an album about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape, seeking to interrogate the social constructions around romance. the album includes the single "Doomed," as well as new versions of standouts "Lonely World" and "Plastic." the smooth depth of his floating r&b recalls solange, sampha, and syd. “these elegant, cosmic soul-jazz excursions are a fine fit for sumney’s extraordinary voice – by turns wracked croon, celestial falsetto and smoked whisper – but there’s warmth and emotional directness, along with the kind of empathetic cool that collaborators including cam o’bi, thundercat and paris strother (of kin) bring.” 8/10 – uncut.
