Watch Sunflower Bean Shred 'Human For' At The Public Radio Day StageWFUV and Folk Alley

Nick Kivlen, Julia Cumming and Jacob Faber, also known as Sunflower Bean, kicked off the Public Radio Day Stage with a bunch of songs from the band's latest album Twentytwo in Blue. The young trio from New York showcased their many sides, including the introspective sweetness of the album's title track and the edgier, more playful tone of "Human For." Their command of the stage and musicianship continues to impress and their set was a clear highlight at the Austin Convention Center.
