Formed in 2013 in New York city, Sunflower Bean released their critically acclaimed debut album Human Ceremony earlier this year. The three piece have described their sound as “neo-psychedelic for the digital age” and the influence of 1990s indie is clearly heard in their music as well as 1960’s psych.

The line-up consisting of Julia Cumming on bass and vocals, Nick Kivlen on guitar and vocals and Jacob Faber on drums, are barely into their twenties but have toured the world already. They have supported bands such as Best Coast, The Vaccines and Wolf Alice whilst picking up a steady fanbase of their own.

The trio’s last visit to Bristol was playing to a sold out Louisiana back in February and the band’s post-summertime return to the city’s larger Thekla venue is much anticipated.

Sunflower Bean play the Thekla on September 13th. Watch the video for ‘Easier Said’.
