This second record from New York trio Sunflower Bean (apparently the two founding members of the band had an affinity for sunflower seeds and coffee/coffee beans, respectively) came out in 2018 to generally favorable reviews. Landing squarely in the indie rock/pop realm, the standout features are singer/bassist Julia Cumming’s vocals and the cohesiveness of the playing by all three band members. There are a couple of songs where vocal duties are mostly carried by the male members of the band, but I find I’m drawn to the songs sung by Cumming. The first five songs (essentially half of the album) are a great way to start out. ‘Any Way You Like’ is a nice slow song toward the end of the record though, again, I think it would’ve worked much better with Cumming on lead vocals for the entire length of the song (she takes over lead about half way through).
