As the New Yorkers gear up for the release of album number three, ‘Who Put You Up To This?’ sees Sunflower Bean take on a deep, scuzzy bassline and eighties hair metal guitar solos, fronteers they’ve not broached until now and they gloriously succeed in creating an entire filmic, swoonful groove of a mood. Singer Julia Cumming’s gusty, powerful vocals pose the question in the song’s title before considering who really makes an individual lead the life they’re living?
Along with their brand new single and video, Sunflower Bean have announced third album ‘Headful of Sugar’ – produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait. The LP will be out via Lucky Number on 6th May.
The tracklisting is below:
‘Who Put You Up To This?’
‘Roll The Dice’
‘Headful of Sugar’
‘I Don’t Have Control Sometimes’
‘Stand By Me’
‘Baby Don’t Cry’
‘Beat The Odds’
