why does it sound like "sont-aye" instead of "sont-el"?

I think the el is there, but I agree it sounds like ayel. I guess it's just the particular accent - probably posh French. Like the Queen says "We should be getting orf".

does "sont" come from etre? just making sure.

je suis - i am tu es - you are il/elle est - he/she is nous sommes - we are vous etes - y'all are ils/elles sont - they are

This is probably a very useful phrase in some parts of Paris...
