sunflower bean are pageant-ready in the beautiful new video for twentytwo
The NY trio just won greatest video of the week and it’s only Tuesday.
Taken from Sunflower Bean’s second album, Twentytwo In Blue, due via Lucky Number on 23 March, Twentytwo rules. “Independent, that’s how you view yourself now that you’re 22,” the song opens, relatably. A celebration of resilience and pushing back against expectations, the accompanying video sees Julia, Nick and Jacob (all 22) get all dressed up with nowhere to go, ending up back home blissing out with friends under a blue light flecked with disco ball shimmers.
“I loved metaphorically speaking about the reality of being a woman, but letting that reality exist while tapping into the magical blues of Twentytwo in Blue,” says the director, i-D collaborator Olivia Bee. “This song showcases our strengths and individual beauties when we remove the masks that have been given to us by our society, and I wanted the video to reflect that.”
