New York power trio Sunflower Bean will bring their fervently expected ‘Twentytwo In Blue’ to Manchester Gorilla on 30/03/2018.
It will be the first chance for Mancunian fans of the band to hear tracks from their upcoming album ‘Twentytwo in Blue’ live. The album is released a week before the concert on 23/03/2018.
The New York trio are all 22 years of age and this, their second album, is the follow up to their head-turning debut – ‘Human Ceremony’.
The announcement of the new album came with the release of the band’s follow up to the albums first single ‘I Was a Fool’. The second release from the album is called ‘Crisis Fest’ and you can give it a listen here.
The first single ‘I Was a Fool’ has been met with a positive response, Sunday Times Culture wrote, “The brilliant Brooklyn trio go Fleetwood Mac here, as Julia Cumming channels her inner Dreams-era Stevie Nicks.”
Co-produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jacob Portrait ‘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.
