As New York City trio Sunflower Bean releases its second album, Twentytwo in Blue, it’s readily apparent that the band has undergone a pretty significant maturation process over the last two years.

After touring the world over a couple of times, opening up gigs with Pixies and Wolf Alice, bassist and singer Julia Cumming, guitarist Nick Kivlen and drummer Jacob Faber took a short break and got right back into writing and recording. The present political climate had plenty of influence on the new songs and the band has discovered a new sense of confidence and swagger.

Sunflower Bean's show at Rockwood Music Hall back in January gave some lucky FUV members a chance to preview of bunch of the new record. There are lots of highlights from that show including “Crisis Fest,” a tune reminiscent of vintage Joan Jett, plus “Burn It,” “Sinking Sands,” and a surprise Neil Young cover.

Setlist:

  • Burn It
  • Twentytwo
  • 2013
  • Easier Said
  • Crisis Fest
  • Sinking Sands
  • Human For
  • I Want You To Give Me Enough Time
  • I Was A Fool
  • Harvest Moon

[recorded: 1/24/18]
