TUNE Sunflower Bean - Twentytwo
New York trio Sunflower Bean (Jacob Faber, Julia Cumming and Nick Kivlen) will release their second record next month, and today they share their brilliant new single "Twentytwo." Showcasing a gentler side of Sunflower Bean that's on display on Twentytwo in Blue, "Twentytwo" is about fighting back against society's expectations and generations of abuse by men in power. "Busted and used/ That's how you view your girl/ Now that she's 22," sings bassist and vocalist Julia Cumming. While it's timely with the recent cultural reckoning, "Twentytwo" shares a powerful and enduring message about resilience and fighting through the expectations put on you as a young adult, especially as a young woman. As Cumming puts it, "You prevail."
