Marked by two vocalists who often take turns within a song, Sunflower Bean is an indie pop trio out of Brooklyn. Formed in August 2013 with singer/guitarist Nick Kivlen, singer/bassist Julia Cumming, and drummer Jacob Faber — all teenagers at the time — they quickly earned attention for their alternately rock-edged and dreamy guitar tunes, and were invited to open on tours for the likes of DIIV and the Vaccines beginning shortly after their first EP, Show Me Your Seven Secrets, arrived in October 2015. Produced by Matthew Molnar, formerly of indie pop group Friends, Sunflower Bean’s debut LP, Human Ceremony, was issued by Fat Possum in early 2016. ~ Marcy Donelson

Parce que New York sera toujours New York, il y aura toujours des groupes comme Sunflower Bean. Trio à la jeunesse insolante, la formation se démarque par sa musique électrique qui cultive une science de la composition et donne naissance à de petites bombes tubesques. S’ils se disent influencés par Pink Floyd ou le Velvet Underground, c’est plutôt à l’âge d’or des Yeah Yeah Yeahs ou à un Blues Explosion biberonné à T Rex que l’on pense.
