New York trio Sunflower Bean release their second record, Twentytwo in Blue. Available here on Limited Rough Trade Exclusive Transparent Blue LP, Indie Exclusive Blue Colored LP, Standard LP and CD.

Sunflower Bean find a sublime maturity and progression to their sound and songwriting on Twentytwo in Blue. If there was a ragged beauty in the gauzy, groovy wall of sound of Human Ceremony, there’s a new directness to these songs, a product of the band’s growth and the insanity of the times we’re in. Sunflower Bean have gained a newly confident voice that they bring to the second album, one that doesn’t shy away from addressing the other events of those two years—political changes and cultural shifts that have left America and the world stupefied.

New York trio Sunflower Bean's album, Twentytwo in Blue, comes almost two years and two months after the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Human Ceremony. 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.
