March’s Artist of the Month, Sunflower Bean, have announced the follow-up to this year’s excellent LP, Twentytwo in Blue. The New York trio’s King of the Dudes EP is set for a January 25th release via Mom+Pop.
The band describes the four-track effort as “reactionary, and a sharpened response to our times” in a press release. As a first listen to their whetted sound, they’ve shared the strutting single “Come For Me”. Swaggering with the glam of T. Rex and an ’80s glow, the track is further evidence of the band’s continued growth in confidence and ability.
“This song was inspired by inner strength, power, and sexual freedom,” Sunflower Bean explain in a press release. “In 2018 there is no time to waste and no time for shame. This song is a declaration of that. Do you really want to come for me? Do you really want to waste my time? The song is a dare, a threat, and a beckoning.”
