Sunflower Bean
I Hear Voices Fat Possum

Article written by Ged M - Aug 24, 2015

A much touted neo-psych band from Brooklyn, Nick Kivlen (vocals/guitar), Julie Cumming (vocals/bass) and Jacob Faber (drums) make an attractive sound from a sparkling set of references. ‘I Hear Voices’ is almost proggy to start (shades of King Crimson, even) before exploding with punky power and bowel-churning bassline and adding a space-warped ending, while the combination of Nick and Julie taking consecutive verses in their eldritch drawl is perfect. B-side fuzz monster ‘The Stalker’ could be psych with heavier riffs, disclosing some Zeppelin and Sabbath in their DNA. It’s a classic sound but they wrestle it into futuristic new shapes, making them essential listening.
