A song that’s been in heavy rotation at KCRW of late and caught our ear is Eliot Sumner‘s excellent “After Dark”.
Little did we know that Sumner is the daughter of Sting and Trudie Styler and lent her vocals to myriad songs over the years, including our favorite Miike Snow track, 2009’s “Animal”.
Her unique vocal style plays out well over her own work, which is subtly catchy and just poppy enough. KCRW’s featuring “After Dark” as today’s Top Tune, so head over to their site to download the track for free today only. She’s also playing a show tonight at the Echo with the also excellent trio, On and On.
“After Dark” comes from Sumner’s just-released EP, SMPLR, which you can listen to + buy via iTunes.
