Sunflower Bean share pageant video fro ‘TwentyTwo’
We recently shared the gorgeous and glossy new track ‘TwentyTwo’ from Sunflower Bean, which not only showcased their upcoming new album Twentytwo in Blue, but the band’s effortless and intriguingly evolving sound. Now they’ve a new video for the track to add some visuals for your eyes while your ears are serenaded.
The set up is fairly simple, we start the video at the entrance to a typical American home as the band get ready for some kind of pageant/prom. It then falls in to the 90’s advert genre, and adds a blue hue across the clip as the band get all glam.
Director Olivia Bee said this about the video “I loved metaphorically speaking about the reality of being a woman, but letting that reality exist whilst tapping into the magical blues of Twentytwo in Blue. This song showcases our strengths and individual beauties when we remove the masks that have been given to us by our society, and I wanted the video to reflect that.”
It’s a truly beautiful number and sees Sunflower Bean grow from their former anarchic roots to find a common thread among us all. If it’s an evolution seen on the album we’ll all be very happy little beans indeed.
