Eliot Sumner (London UK) just released a 3-track EP called, “Information” via Cherrytree/Interscope.

The lead track, “Information,” is a six-minute synth-and-strings song that plays out with a long, confident instrumental passage. “It’s a break-up song,” Eliot explains. “It’s about not understanding the situation. With social networks these days, everyone needs to know everything, all the time. It’s about a quest to know everything. We recorded it in one take, so it’s nice to have that on the album.”

Rather just the audio? Here you go!

Here’s a Trentemøller Remix of “Information” that I played on my Radio show (Ready, Set, Radio!) last Saturday!

Another track on the album (and possibly my favourite) is “Come Friday,”. Sumner describes it as “a more guitar-driven track with an anthemic chorus, but again, its shiny, soaring melodies disguise a darker subject matter. “That’s one of my favorites, but it’s not a very happy song. It’s about still being in love with someone but not allowing them to have another life.”
