I rather enjoyed this little single from Sunflower Bean, a fresh young band making highly energised slightly-psychedelic slightly-punk indie rock. I Hear Voices has an excellently reverberating lead vocal over a frantic drum-beat, while The Stalker lurks on the B-side, like a stalker. 7” on Fat Possum. Warning: Arse on sleeve.

7/10 Chuck James Customer review, 12th April 2016
Sunflower Bean are like a very young Tame Impala. Kevin Parker's influence is obvious on the trio, with a song on their debut EP actually being called 'Tame Impala'. This doesn't relegate them to simply being a quasi-tribute act. The band have been touring solidly for the past two years, and have consistently proven their worth as a live band.
The two songs presented here are an excellent idea of what to expect from the group's LP, 'Show me Your Seven Secrets'. The band specialise in a hazy, tripped-out sounding blend of prog and alt rock, with Julia Cumming's classical vocal training adding an interesting twist on a done-before sound. Nick Kliven's guitar work is impressive for such a young guy, and it is his songwriting ability that holds these songs together.
I really like this band, and hope we'll hear a lot more form them in the future.
