If Fleetwood Mac had been a trio then this is probably what they would have sounded like, and that’s not taking anything away from Sunflower Bean. The band came together in New York in the summer of 2013 when frontwoman Julia Cumming met guitarist Nick Kivlen and drummer Jacob Faber. They then played over 80 shows in their first year together.
Their debut album Human Ceremony was released in early 2016, and in the spring of this year, they put out their follow-up Twentytwo in Blue. Though all the band members are still in their early twenties, their influences all come from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and these influences are all clearly audible in their music (everything from The Byrds and Brian Wilson to The Sex Pistols and Led Zeppelin).
