Sunflower Bean


Sunflower Bean has made waves as they relight the torch and bring rock into the future. Julia Cumming (vox/bass, Supercute!), Nick Kivlen (vox/guitar, Turnip King), and Jacob Faber (drums, Turnip King), have all yet to turn 20, but are already veterans of the Brooklyn DIY scene. Drawing from a wealth of rugged lo-fi sounds, they have adapted the heroic charisma of Velvet Underground psychedelia and Black Sabbath’s dark rock to fit their own generation’s drowsy indie ethos. They're messy and sexy, hypnotizing and polished, invigorating and sincere. Sunflower Bean are the new faces of the new New York.

Sunflower Bean just released their new single "Tame Impala", a blistering sun drenched single with sharp hooks and incandescent guitar riffs. They've recently been featured in i-D, Rookie,and BK Mag. Sunflower Bean opened for Foxygen at the Constellation Room in LA and played a sold out show with Cherry Glazerr at Baby's All Rite in Brooklyn. Vocalist Julia Cummings has also been attracting a lot of attention after Hedi Slimane flew her out to Paris to walk for St Laurent during Paris Fashion Week.
