Over the past couple of years, the New York-based three-piece Sunflower Bean caught the ear of many throughout the indie/rock scene — and they’re ready for more.
On March 23, the band released Twentytwo In Blue, their second full-length and the follow-up to 2016’s Human Ceremony. A natural progression from the sounds and themes explored on their debut LP, Twentytwo In Blue is a starkly grabbing listen, from opening track “Burn It” (with its steady drum beat, garage-rock riffs and vocalist/bassist Julia Cummings’ delivery) to lead single “I Was a Fool” and “Crisis Fest” (a politically-charged anthem that seems quite timely at the moment with lines like “2017 we know/reality’s one big sick show”) and throughout the rest of the record.
Sunflower Bean’s influences are apparent while listening to the new record, and as a far-ranging as Fleetwood Mac to the Rolling Stones, with a little shoegaze-y glam/pop added in for maximum effect.
