SUNFLOWER BEAN Premiere New Track & Announce New Tour Dates!

Sunflower Bean will release their utterly brilliant debut album Human Ceremony next month, and today they share the album's gorgeous second single and lead track entitled "Easier Said." On this song, Nick Kivlen's lilting, clean guitar is met with Julia Cumming's delicate, gliding vocals, which spiral off into a vibrant hum as she sings simple yet hard-hitting truths like, "Should have just stayed home when I'd rather/Be alone instead" and "You're getting old/So act your age/It isn't fun /To make the same mistakes." The result is a subtly beautiful single that will prove difficult to forget. CLICK HERE to listen via Stereogum now.

Sunflower Bean - who are known internationally for their exhilarating live shows - also announce the second leg of their U.S. Spring tour. CLICK HERE for tickets.

Human Ceremony will be released on February 5th via Fat Possum. Drawing inspiration from a vast pool of influences such as Black Sabbath and The Cure, Sunflower Bean have crafted an album that is a potent, heady mix of swirling indie pop, urgent, fuzzed-out guitar bliss, and girl/boy sugar-spun vocal melodies that delivers a modern-day spin on classic rock & roll. Having gotten their start in the DIY New York scene, Sunflower Bean quickly accelerated into one of the foremost up-and-coming bands nationally and overseas over the last few months. Following the release of their singular EP earlier this year, and a 7-inch vinyl this Summer, Sunflower Bean played over 100 shows in one year between the U.S. and Europe, opening for the likes of DIIV, Best Coast, and Wolf Alice, and delivering show-stopping sets at CMJ, SXSW and UK's Great Escape festival.  Now, Sunflower Bean are set to deliver one of the best debuts you will hear in 2016.
