The future looks bright for Launceston electronic act Sumner.
The past 12 months have seen the act play festivals and showcases across the country, the release of a debut EP in February and finally a new single, Put it Out, which was released last week.
Having worked on the project for the past two years, Chloe Wilson and Jack McLaine aren’t letting up with another summer of touring, including a spot at the Falls Festival, and more songs in the pipeline.
“Two years ago we wouldn't have imagined being in this position which we are now and some of the opportunities we're getting,” said bassist and producer Jack McLaine.
Appearances at Falls Festival, Big Sound and Party in the Paddock have been broken up by intense periods of songwriting.
“We had a winter session writing lots of new material,” McLaine said.
“We did so much writing and came out the other side with a lot of songs ready to release over the next 12 months.”
Using their combined appreciation of a diverse range of music, from folk to hip hop and classic pop, the duo craft their tunes using electronic production techniques as well as more traditional instrumentation.
“Chloe comes from quite a folky background, she grew up playing open mic nights and I played bass,” McLaine said.
After kicking around in various form for the past two years their new track, Put it Out, was debuted by Triple last week.
“We finished the song while we were away at BigSound so a lot of the production processes were as simple as you can get, just a laptop and headphones,” McLaine said.
The duo will look to release a new track every few months to maintain momentum as their profile continues to build.
Put it Out, is available to listen to now on all streaming services.
