Sunflower Bean exploded on to the scene a few years back with a brash combination of indie and psyche, and have since been quietly cultivating the image and mystique that all Brooklyn bands strive for. What has been lacking from this image-led runaway train has been some new music.
Luckily the band have finally been able to put out some new tunes on their new label Lucky Numbers, and with it a brand new video to boot. The track ‘I Was A Fool’ has all the hallmarks of an indie disco favourite (if they still exist) and reeks of a band determined to find the holy grail of ‘cool’.
Vocalist Nick had this to say about the track “‘I Was A Fool’ is one of those songs that seemingly crept up from nowhere and into our practice space. It was a special moment between the three of us, Julia and I both improvised the lyrics,”
“It feels like far longer, but it’s been nearly 2 years since we’ve put new music into the world. I think this song is a good example of how we’ve grown as a band, while still staying true to the band that first played together back in high school.”
