Bio

“Kicking off Saturday in fine form was young Tassie duo Sumner. Exploding out of the gates, the R&B two-piece set the bar exceptionally high, with a set so captivating an ample crowd began to swell – an impressive feat for a relatively unknown opening act. Comprised of Chloe Wilson and Jack McLaine, the only way to accurately describe them is phenomenal. With an EP in the works for this year, Sumner solidified themselves as a world class talent to watch this year.” – Bel Ryan – Music Editor @ BEAT MAGAZINE (March, 2017)

Tasmanian alternative electronic duo, Sumner (Chloe Wilson & Jack McLaine) have “developed a keen grasp of brooding, addictive melody” – (Mixdown Magazine). With their blend of detailed electronic production, rich acoustic sounds and honest lyrics, Sumner’s compelling songwriting continues to captivate a growing audience. Recently having supported the nationally acclaimed Vera Blue, Montaigne, Smith Street Band/Wil Wagner and performing at Party In the Paddock Festival and Falls Festival; Sumner are fast developing their live show, ready for the release of their debut EP.

another great one from the ep. i can see why this is the title track too, it's got all your strengths - big moments mixed with softer passages, magical and emotional vocals and some production trickery.

Bravo, Sumner. I was a very very big fan of 45 Roses so you'd have to do well to beat that in my mind. This reaches similar heights thanks to the dreamy duet vocals and controlled pitch shifting.
