hear : see : Sumner
45 white roses dancing with the chosen / ask the doctor please what’s the diagnosis / if I don’t get rid of preconceived dread / I run the world blind there’s no visions in dead ends / no I put my feelings on show / I’m all about the open dialogue / mama worried she know I been working like a dog / but ya gotta put in work if you wanna get how you are now
Sumner, the Tassie duo made up of Chloe Wilson and Jack McLaine, are tricky to categorise – but their mix of moody electronica and R&B, honest lyrics, brooding beats and awesome hooks have wowed crowds at the Falls Festival and Big Sound. Triple J Unearthed reckon they’re ones to watch and with their new EP out now, you can hear for yourself…

eat : drink : celebrate
Just like having a pair of ‘good thongs' is a Townsville ‘thing’, so too is getting really, really excited about new eateries that open up around town.
We love food and we love ‘new’, so it’s celebrations all round for Bridgewater, the brand new venture from JAM restaurant owner/chef Matt Merrin that opened this week.
The primo riverfront location is at the city end of Palmer Street right next to the Victoria Bridge with an upmarket restaurant upstairs, and a cool inner-city oasis Bridge Bar downstairs. The styling is Tropical Coastal and features 150 year old timber beams recycled from the Defender ship that sank just up the creek.
So what’s on the menu?
Modern Australian with a focus on local produce and exciting flavour combos like ‘Townsville prawns, cured salmon, shiso, mango + pear pickle and coastal greens’ (a hit on the weekend) plus Bridge Bar food - affordable casual tapas and snack menu all under $20, so head to the newest hotspot to see and be seen – you can check out the menu and booking details right HERE…
