Sunflower Bean return with “Baby Don’t Cry” and plans to get back on the road late this year
Mom+Pop Records sweethearts Sunflower Bean are riding a huge wave in their young career. In 2018, their sophomore record Twentytwo in Blue rose to the UK’s Top 40, and all three band members turned 22 years old. Sunflower Bean spent the following years touring with household names like Beck, Interpol, and label-mate Courtney Barnett, to name a few. In 2021, they’re back with new music, starting with the single “Baby Don’t Cry.”
The tune is a fun, catchy indie bop with edgy guitar and synths. It’s familiar-sounding, but still new and distinct — perfectly emblematic of trends that resonate with a Gen-Z audience, or even a little older. Disillusioned members of society of all ages will resonate with the meaning of “Baby Don’t Cry.” About the song, Sunflower Bean says, “So many things in our lives are disposable. Content and news is consumed and discarded leaving us unfulfilled. ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ is about enjoying the real. The things right in front of us that give us meaning and how sometimes, even sad songs can give you that warm feeling of hope.”
In addition to the new single, Sunflower Bean announced an upcoming tour with a stop at Phantom Power in Millersville on March 5th, 2022. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. You can listen to “Baby Don’t Cry” below.
