“It’s amazing to see and hear this band’s maturation in such a short time. Cumming’s vocal is strong and confident, and the classic rock riffs conjure up comparisons to Joan Jett…ridiculously talented” – NPR Music
“Spirited interpreters of rock ’n’ roll’s eternal truths, the three early-20s New Yorkers who make up Sunflower Bean are equally adept at studio finesse (witness their recent single ‘I Was a Fool’) and raucous live noise.” – New York Times

Sunflower Bean‘s new record Twentytwo in Blue is out now, almost two years and two months after the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Human Ceremony, and with all three members now 22 years old. Co-produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait (who also mixed the record) and HC-producer Matt Molnar of Friends, Twentytwo in Blue shows Sunflower Bean stay true to their guitar band core and classic rock-inspired roots, while exploring new sonic textures with more direct and progressive themes. Unlike their debut, which was essentially a compilation of songs Sunflower Bean wrote while still in their teens, Twentytwo in Blue was made in the year between December 2016 and December 2017 and showcases how far the band has come since playing together in their high school days.
