From new album 'Human Ceremony'...
Sunflower Bean

Sunflower Bean know how to wrap hard truths in something rather more palatable.

Take new cut 'Easier Said' - stripped from their debut album, it's outwardly blissful, the shimmering guitars matched to a real rhythmic crunch.

But then you start to explore the lyrics: "Should have just stayed home when I’d rather / Be alone instead..."

The Brooklyn group have shot a new video for the track, directed by Charlotte Hornsby. Sunflower Bean explain: "This is a special song for us and we wanted to do something different with the video. A lot of our other videos have been shot on iPhones, which was cool, but we wanted to try the polar opposite of that which is why we asked the director, Charlotte, to work completely on film. We also wanted the visuals to work with the feeling of the song more so than the literal meaning. The movement, the elements, and the colors in the video capture that vibe."
