NEW ALBUM: TWENTYTWO IN BLUE OUT 23RD MARCH
VIA LUCKY NUMBER

Early praise for Twentytwo in Blue:

“The brilliant Brooklyn trio go Fleetwood Mac here, as Julia Cumming channels her inner Dreams-era Stevie Nicks” – Sunday Times Culture

“Outstanding, and, unreservedly, Rumours-rivalling fantastic” – MOJO

“The dreamy, mid-tempo [‘Twentytwo’] brings bassist and singer Julia Cumming’s beautiful vocals to the forefront as she delivers a message of resilience in the face of society’s expectations thrust upon young women.” - Consequence of Sound

“New York’s hippest band offer up dreamy, Fleetwood Mac-influenced loveliness” - NME

New York trio Sunflower Bean (Julia Cumming, Jacob Faber, Nick Kivlen) will release their second album in a few weeks, and today they share an incredible, pageant-themed music video for their latest single “Twentytwo,” a song with a powerful and enduring message about resilience and pushing back against expectations. Watch here

Director Olivia Bee explains: “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.” 

Sunflower Bean will release Twentytwo in Blue on March 23rd - when all members of the band will be 22 years old – and comes almost two years and two months after the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Human Ceremony. 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.
