Sunflower Bean @ The Bishop 4/7
Following the release of their full-length debut Human Ceremony (via Fat Possum), Brooklyn’s Sunflower Bean will take their psychedelic dream pop to The Bishop tonight. After an EP release last summer and a handful of singles prior to their album, the young trio has been steadily on the rise, playing opening gigs with both DIIV and Wolf Alice. Their youthful approach to tracks like single, “Easier Said,” evoke an airy, psychedelic feel, while album closer “Space Exploration Disaster,” tap into the more fuzz-rock influences heard throughout the record.
Toronto-based Weaves and locals The Pills will open up the show. Fronted by Jasmyn Burke, Weaves guitar-driven pop has received praise from outlets like Rolling Stone and Noisey following the release of their 2014 self-titled debut EP. Their first full-length album will be released June 17.
The Pills are no stranger to the Bloomington scene, having recently played a show at The Bishop with Keeps and opening up another for Radkey. Their EP Real Cheese was released last fall.
Music starts at 9:30, with tickets available for $8 in advance and $10 at the door. This is an 18+ show.
