“It’s never ringing out.”

“Wall Watcher” by Sunflower Bean | Boom. In one week, Sunflower Bean – a band I have never heard about, and this is regardless of my well-cultivated reputation for being late to buzz bands – exploded. Suddenly all the radio stations I listen to are just talking about them: the folks at Monocle 24, the folks at FBI in Sydney, all the American noncomm triple As I listen to. Sunflower Bean’s been around for a few years, released an EP, and just a couple of weeks ago, debuted their first full-length, Human Ceremony. It’s that mix of not-so-lo-fi with the excitement of punk and just the right amount of reverb. Do I dare compare them to Wolf Alice, though? Somewhat? People might be angry at that suggestion, because, you know, Sunflower Bean is, like, cooler, right? [NB]
