SEliot Sumner comes from music royalty. Her father is Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner. Still doesn't ring a bell? How about Sting? Yep. Eliot is the daughter of Sting and actress Trudie Styler and it seems like she's inherited her father's music talent.
Today, Sumner released her new EP Information via Cherrytree/Interscope. In her new video for the title track, Sumner's dead-of-night meetup is both dark and mysterious. Two cars with only their headlights illuminating Sumner begs the question, "What are they all after?"
"The video is a representation of the self, alone and vulnerable in a dark void," she said. "'Information' is a breakup song; it's about not understanding the situation. With social networks these days, everyone needs to know everything, all the time. But the problem is, people are so used to short snippets of information that no one has any attention span any more. I don't, anyway. It's about a quest to know everything."
The Information EP is out now.
