I recently saw the video of “I Was a Fool” by Sunflower Bean because I was intrigued by the thumbnail, that is to say Julia Cumming’s make-up and dress.
Sunflower Bean is a psych rock trio from New York founded in 2013 by Julia Cumming, Nick Kivlen and Jacob Faber. The band released the first LP, “Human Ceremony”, in February 2016 and recently released the single “I Was a Fool”.
The video was directed by Andy DeLuca and it’s set during a prom, where the band performs. Singer and bassist Julia Cumming wears a beautiful, sparkling fringed dress and glitter sandals while singer and guitarist Nick Kivlen wears a white suit with black shirt, ribbon and boots (I think he looks a bit like Bob Dylan). Drummer Jacob Faber is minimalist, instead.
Some say “I Was a Fool” reminds a lot of Fleetwood Mac’s music, so maybe that’s why I like it so much, I find it dreamy.
