Sumner caught the attention of the music world early in 2018 releasing their debut single Pictures and EP All ThatI Am; with calming, dexterous production and songs being compared to the likes of Frank Ocean and Lorde. The collection of songs is perfectly unique and completely self-assured, not only rare for such a young project – it’s precisely what makes them special.
Following a year of hard work, playing showcases at Big Sound & EMC (Electronic Music Conference), supporting Alex Lahey, Slowly Slowy and signing to The Harbour Agency; the Tasmanian alternative electronic duo consisting of Jack McLaine and Chloe Wilson are set to release their absorbing new single Put It Out, on November 23.
With Sumner’s signature slick, sophisticated production, this chilled electronic track is the perfect follow-up to the head-turning debut EP All That I Am. Minutely detailed, balanced and uncluttered, ‘Put It Out is inspired by the glass shattering moment you realise someone is not who you think they are. It is a song about putting all of yourself into something or someone, and the realisation that you’re not recieving anything for all you’ve given. It’s about the realisation that you’re just another cog in the machine and that some things can’t be in our control’.
Jack and Chloe share a little more about the process and the team behind it all, “Put It Out is a song we started working on around 3 years ago. We had it sitting on the computer in various stages of completion but once we wrote the chorus we couldn’t seem to get it out of our heads for months and we couldn’t help but finish writing it. We remade the song in a few production sessions using Ableton and headphones, while travelling for Big Sound, and were fortunate enough to work with mix engineer John Castle (Greta Ray, Cub Sport, Vance Joy, Meg Mac) and continue our relationship with fellow Tasmanian-based mastering engineer William Bowden from King Willy Sound(Gotye, Winston Surfshirt).’
