Get to know Sunflower Bean, the NYC indie trio opening for Sleigh Bells on Tuesday, February 6th!
Goes Great With: DIIV, Wolf Alice, Parquet Courts, Courtney Barnett
Sunflower Bean has generated plenty of positive buzz following the release of their debut album “Human Ceremony” in early 2016, but the band have been veterans of the Brooklyn DIY scene for years, playing over 50 shows in their hometown of NYC. Playing together since high school, the three-piece has gone through various stages of evolution to craft their current sound. Though their early sound was rooted in bluesy garage rock, with a brief foray into doom metal, their current vibe also draws from classic rock and psychedelia, with a wealth of lo-fi loose edges and dreamy guitar for a modern indie sound that pulls you in and leaves you wanting more.
Check out the video for their single “I Was A Fool,” a melancholy groove that makes you a little happy, a little sad, and a little bit like you want to dance. It’s make out music for jaded lovers.
