Sunflower Bean 

When: Fri., March 4, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $8 ADV, $10 DOS
The seductive singing of bassist Julia Cumming carries many of the songs on Sunflower Bean’s debut album, Human Ceremony, but the New York trio really shines when her voice contrasts the shimmering riffs of guitarist Nick Kivlen, who founded the band with drummer Jacob Faber around 2013. The overarching mood of their album is hard to pin down, as the band bounces from the dreamy jangle of its opening title track to the spunky throbbing of “Wall Watcher” to the soft cuteness of “I Want You to Give Me Enough Time.” In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the 20-year-olds of Sunflower Bean name-dropped Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and T. Rex in a debate about which band had the best debut album. It’s hard to say if Sunflower Bean’s debut might be similarly adored by teens 40 years after its release date, but the album’s lush soundscape firmly establishes the band as an exciting new name in indie pop.
