I Was A Fool is New York trio Sunflower Bean’s first new single since releasing their critically acclaimed debut album Human Ceremony last year.

It is a sublime slice of dreamy, indie-pop that over three and a half minutes manages to expertly navigate a route that prevents it from ever becoming twee or overly saccharine whilst retaining a gentle, rolling charm all of its own.

Listen below. As well as opening for the Wolf Alice tour next week, they will be back in March next year for a headline tour of their own. Dates also below.

We’ve already posted Stalker, the flip side to I Hear Voices by Brooklyn’s neo-psych rockers Sunflower Bean.

Now here is the A side in all its hazy, spring-heeled glory that is making good on all the hype the band are generating.

Stream it here.


Brooklyn-based neo-psych rock trio Sunflower Bean are gearing up for their first-ever label release, a 7” coming out on Fat Possum on July 24th. To mark the occasion they have released a new, hard-hitting song entitled The Stalker, which will be the forthcoming single’s b-side.

It follows the equally good, previously released a-side, I Hear Voices (which we posted here).


Brooklyn-based psychedelic trio Sunflower Bean’s  new single I Hear Voices will be released on Fat Possum on the 24th July.

They have taken their garage-rock and psych sounds, spiced them up with some sweetly melodic riffs and smothered it all in hazy vocals. It is a more than worthy follow up to their self-released debut EP, Show Me Your Seven Secrets, at the end of 2014 (see our previous band post here).

I Hear Voices will be available on limited 7” and download, and features The Stalker on the flip side.

Give it a spin.



MM Shorts 607: Sunflower Bean

Sunflower Bean just released their new single, the boldly named Tame Impala, it is a blistering sun drenched single with sharp hooks and incandescent guitar riffs that channels Velvet Underground psychedelia and Black Sabbath’s dark rock to their own drowsy indie ethos

Have a listen.
