Sunflower Bean have shared a teaser of a new track.
They’ve posted a clip to social media, alongside a date – 7th March – and an emoji of a dice.
That suggests we’re going to get ‘Roll The Dice’, track four from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Headful of Sugar’, which is set for release on 6th May.
The track will follow on from last single ‘Who Put You Up To This?’, which arrived earlier this year.
The album ‘Headful of Sugar’ is described as a “psychedelic headrush designed to be played loud, windows down”.
“We wanted to write about the lived experience of late capitalism, how it feels every day, the mundanity of not knowing where every construct is supposed to ultimately lead you,” guitarist and vocalist Nick Kivlen says. “The message is in the title: this is about fast pleasures, the sugar of life, the joy that comes with letting go of everything you thought mattered.”
“Tomorrow is not promised, no tour is promised, no popularity is promised, no health or money is promised,” bassist / vocalist Julia Cumming continues. “Why not make what you want to make on your own terms? Why not make a record that makes you want to dance? Why not make a record that makes you want to scream?”
