Moses Sumney Shares New Song Announces EP

Moses Sumney releases a new song, “Rank & File” today and announces the Black In Deep Red EP. “Rank & File” has military overtones and criticizes a police state and the submission required of its enforcing officers. Sumney is releasing the Black In Red EP this month and had this to say, 

Black in Deep Red, 2014 was ignited by the first and last time I attended a protest. It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder, delivering the verdict just in time for them to get home for Thanksgiving.
 
I felt like a camouflaged outsider at the protest, like an anthropologist performing a study amongst his own kind. I took to the mountains soon after that and wrote these songs, wondering if power was a transferable device that could change hands through the vocalizing of unrest.
 
The EP’s title is inspired by a 1957 Mark Rothko painting by the same name.”
