Watch Sunflower Bean’s Cheeky New Video For “Come On”
It involves skunks + sunflowers
Brooklyn trio Sunflower Bean is bringing back fuzzy alt-rock from the days when bands like The Cure and Sonic Youth reigned the musicsphere. Still riding the success of their February full-length debut, Human Ceremony, the group—made up of Julia Cumming, Nick Kivlen, and Jacob Faber—just released the music video for the album's second track, "Come On." Spoiler alert: It's pretty damn perfect.
The Ruby June-directed visual takes everything we love about the band—from their psychedelic jams to Cumming's flawless scarf game and the band's willingness to not take anything too seriously—and rolls it up into one vibrant, strobe-lit scene. Filmed at Brooklyn's ACME Studios, the band members bring their lyrics to life under various neon spotlights. They aren't afraid to have fun with some unusual props, choosing magnifying glasses, sand timers, skunks, and sunflowers that double as drumsticks.
As an added bonus, the video for "Come On" comes hand-in-hand with the announcement that Sunflower Bean will expand their tour to North America come fall.
The up-and-comers have yet to disappoint—their rustic March visual for "Easier Said" is one of our favorites of 2016 thus far. With each release, the band further proves that music videos don't have to be complicated or laden with special effects to be captivating.
