For fans of: The Velvet Underground, Black Sabbath, Tame Impala
Hailing from the city that never sleeps, Sunflower Bean sure write music that makes us daydream. Comprised of Jacob Faber (drums), Julia Cumming (vocals/ bass) and Nick Kivlen (vocals/ guitar), the trio cite Velvet Underground, Black Sabbath, Nirvana as some of their favorite bands and it’s really interesting how they combine different parts of those aforementioned names.
Drawing from lo-fi sounds, dark rock’n’roll and psychedelic with a proper amount of reverb and heavy riffs, their music is sort of moody, but at the same time magical mixed with a young and brave attitude. They used to call their music as a “neo-psychedelic for the digital age” and we totally get that. Now the trio see themselves beyond that.
Early this year, the trio released Show Me Your Seven Secrets EP that definitely showed and even drew the attention of the most distracted music lovers. That EP has six songs that compile the perfect combination of what the band is about. “I Hear Voices” is the band’s most recent single and it’s a song inspired by a “fun fight” between the band.
