Sunflower Bean find magic within friction. The New York trio's full-length debut album, 'Human Ceremony,' via Fat Possum Records, emerges at the intersection of dreamy modern psychedelica and urgent fuzzed-out bliss. That push-and-pull colors the aural tapestry of these three musicians—Jacob Faber (drums), Julia Cumming (vocals/bass), and Nick Kivlen (vocals/guitars).
"Everything comes from a conflicting interest," affirms Nick. "We love dream pop, but we also really love rock 'n' roll. It's those two spectrums." "You're allowed to obsess over Black Sabbath as well as The Cure," adds Julia. "It'd be boring if everything was just one way or the other."
That diversity defined the group's approach since Nick and Jacob started jamming back in high school. Julia's addition would only expand that creative palette further in 2013.
After performing over 100 shows over 1 year, the group transferred this multi-headed energy into their Independent EP, 'Show Me Your Seven Secrets.' At the same time, this distinct alchemy enchanted ever-growing audiences live. By the time, they entered the studio for 'Human Ceremony,' Sunflower Bean had a lively aural cauldron from which to draw.
