Picked as one of my ‘Ones To Watch’ for 2016, Sunflower Bean are a New-York based trio who do not fit into a clear genre. Personally, I think this adds to their appeal, as they blend elements of darkness into their dreamy sound. While it is difficult to place them in a genre, they certainly have clear alternative 80s influences (think The Cure, The Sundays etc.)
Their debut album Human Ceremony is released on Friday (5th Feb) and they will tour the UK from next week. Their latest release from the album, also called ‘Human Ceremony’ is a perfect example of their gorgeous neo psychedelic sound. Along with singles such as ‘Easier Said’, Sunflower Bean are clearly a band to watch out for and I can’t wait to hear their debut album.
