Moses Sumney's TV Debut Performance Will Touch Your Core

The Ghanaian-American singer stopped by Later...with Jools Holland to perform "Plastic."

Moses Sumney's voice is savory and velvety like dark chocolate, yet achingly heartbreaking like the first chill that strikes your spine at the turn of Fall.

Aromanticism, Sumney's stunning debut album, is the mood for autumn: contemplative, melancholy and lonely, it colors your senses with the same hues as Autumn's leaves.

To add even more longing to this season, Sumney performed his hit "Plastic" at Later...with Jools Holland. Cloaked in black, studded in gold and copper abstract rings and shrouded by glowing spotlights, the aromantic crooned his lyrical tale of inauthenticity, complexity and sadness.

The thing is: the brief performance is so lovable that you can't help but shudder at his honesty and harmony.

Watch his performance below and be sure to stick around for the end: there's a chorus of echoes you can't miss.
