NEW MUSIC: SUNFLOWER BEAN - “KING OF THE DUDES”
02 Nov 2018
Sunflower Bean announces a new EP out via Lucky Number.
New York Trio SUNFLOWER BEAN (Julia Cumming, Jacob Faber, Nick Kivlen) announce a new EP entitled ‘King Of The Dudes’.
To celebrate the announcement, they share the first single “Come For Me” (premiered by Radio 1’s Annie Mac as the ‘Hottest Record In The World’).
Julia explains, “This song was inspired by inner strength, power, and sexual freedom. In 2018 there is no time to waste and no time for shame. This song is a declaration of that. Do you really want to come for me? Do you really want to waste my time? The song is a dare, a threat, and a beckoning.”
The EP, produced by Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Charlie XCX, Angel Olsen) and released on January 25th, 2019, through Lucky Number, follows on from the release of their second album Twentytwo in Blue earlier this year.
The band add, “This EP does not give a fuck, it’s reactionary, and a sharpened response to our times. Death, birth, aggression, addiction, and power. Twentytwo In Blue allowed us to find our strength and on King Of The Dudes we use it, no holds barred.”
“…this’ll be the album that catapults them into being recognised as one of the most important artists in the game.” – NME 5/5
“’Twenty Two In Blue’ is an impressive reflection of their formative years and a place to start talking about their future.” – The Line of Best Fit 8/10
“New York three-piece Sunflower Bean come into their own on their second long player ‘Twentytwo in Blue.’” – The Skinny 4/5
“bigger, bolder pop-rock” – The Guardian 4/5
Catch Sunfllower Bean at EartH on 22nd January. Tickets available HERE.
“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
