Born in northern Italy in 1990, Eliot Sumner received a first-rate musical education from her father, Sting. She grew up in a small village in Wiltshire, England, and kept herself largely removed from the glamour and glitz of her father’s career. By her mid-teens, however, "Coco" Sumner had taken a cue from her dad by composing reggae-flavored songs of her own, many of which were posted to her MySpace page. Several labels took interest in the material, and she subsequently signed a multi-album deal with Island Records.
Following her first studio album, Sumner took a four-year hiatus to re-evaluate her sound. During this time she also worked with the composer Clint Mansell on a soundtrack for the film Filth. After putting out the blistering, three-track EP Information last August, Eliot embarked on a European tour with Swedish songstress Lykke Li. The tour was captured in a two–part, behind-the-scenes documentary: On the Road with Eliot Sumner and Lykke Li.
Zipper Club comprises Mason James of Cerebral Ballzy, Lissy Trullie of Lissy Trullie, and Damar Davis on drums. “If it sounds good I don’t care if it’s from the 1920s or the 2016s. As a musician, you take little tidbits of cool sounds you hear and combine them into something completely unique. Music needs to reflect on itself,” says James, the no-nonsense guitarist and founding member behind the addictive assault of a new-wave inspired band alongside multi-instrumentalist, co-writer, and vocalist Lissy Trullie.
