The neo psychedelics from Brooklyn, Sunflower Bean, dropped a new single “Easier Said” recently as an appetizer for their upcoming album, Human Ceremony (out on February 5). Listen below:

It’s got a kookiness similar to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, but is embellished with more fringes of dream pop and contains a pinch of rock making it far contemplative groove-oriented rather than Pains’ optimistic one. Cushioned with Julia Cummings’s mellow-floaty vocals, “Easier Said” has the right amount of haziness buffering the glimmering guitars. Sunflower Beam will kick off tour:
