Sunflower Bean make their Mom + Pop debut with “I Was a Fool”
The band is back to business.
Sunflower Bean has unveiled a new single called "I Was a Fool." The New York-based group also released a Andy DeLuca-directed music video for the song that is available exclusively at Apple Music, but fans can watch a preview on YouTube.
This track marks the indie rock trio's first new release since they dropped their Human Ceremony album last year. Since they initially broke out of the DIY scene, Sunflower Bean has signed to the label Mom + Pop.
"'I Was A Fool' is one of those songs that seemingly crept up from nowhere and into our practice space. It was a special moment between the three of us, Julia and I both improvised the lyrics," Nick Kivlen said in a press statement. "It feels like far longer, but it's been nearly two years since we've put new music into the world. I think this song is a good example of how we've grown as a band, while still staying true to the band that first played together back in high school."
