They’re not even allowed to drink (at least legally) but Sunflower Bean all already starting to call to mind the work ethic of prolific rockers like Ty Segall. The group have been touring endlessly since the start of 2014, playing more shows than anyone else in the great city of New York. This year they released their fantastic debut EP Show Me Your Seven Secrets, full of songs featuring hard-hitting psych wandering. They then followed that up with a 7″ featuring two rippers (“I Hear Voices” / “The Stalker”) that was released via Fat Possum over the summer.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the group have now announced that their debut album Human Ceremony will be released via Fat Possum on February 5. To mark the occasion of the announcement, the trio have released the ripping first single “Wall Watcher.” It’s a song that I’ve heard many times in live form, and I can proudly say that they’ve captured its essence and then some on this recording. It showcases the bands ability to rip through glorious fuzz rips, while also finding a slick psych-groove that they hammer home almost too easily.

Stream “Wall Watcher” below, pre-order the album here, and find the tracklisting below. I’ve also included their upcoming tour dates, which includes their own headlining performance at Bowery Ballroom on February 25, as well as a return trip to SXSW.
