Bio

“A potential production powerhouse, one that enters the music scene fully formed, with some big ideas and the talent to back it up” – Pilerats (Jan 23, 2018)

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.

Sumner caught the attention of the music world in 2018 releasing their debut single ‘Pictures’ and EP ‘All That I Am’; with their calming, dexterous production and songs being compared to the likes of Frank Ocean and Lorde. The collection of songs is perfectly unique and completed self-assured, not only rare for such a young project – it’s precisely what makes them special. Triple J supported the release with a radio premiere; ‘45 Roses’ was added to the Triple J Unearthed Podcast and featured in Unearthed Top 5.

Since the release, Sumner were awarded the 2018 Josh Pyke Partnership Grant and selected to showcase at Big Sound and EMC (Electronic Music Conference). In late-2018, Sumner independently released the self-produced single ‘Put It Out’ which received spot play on Triple J and a feature artist slot on Unearthed.

Recently having supported the acclaimed Vera Blue, Montaigne, Slowly Slowly and performing at Party In the Paddock Festival and Falls Festival; Sumner are fast developing their live show which has been described as warm, vulnerable and addictive, leaving audiences wanting more.

big fan of this one from sumner which has this cool, darker undercurrent while also feeling joyous and like it would send a big festival crowd into a frenzy.
