A Day in the Life of Eliot Sumner

Eliot Sumner’s prowess has evolved nicely since her previous musical incarnation, I Blame Coco, released The Constant in 2010. In those six years, Sumner has retained the buoyant synth energy and pop elation of her former outfit, tempered with a strong backbone of melody and texture that defined last January’s Information, released under her birth name. Sumner’s throaty, rich voice and four-string expertise also show her formidable heritage from father Gordon Sumner, AKA Sting. Paste photographer Drew Reynolds spent some time with Sumner and her band last week at The Bowery Ballroom at the tail end of their fall tour, capturing their soundcheck and live show while chatting about IPAs and encores.
