CRITIC REVIEWS

Dork

Rather than sounding stale or old, it is alive with vibrancy and life.

DIY

Over four songs and just twelve minutes, it packs enough punch to inspire air guitar, desk drumming, shower singing and wanting to start a band just so you can try and shred like these three.

80
NME

Effortless and fearless, Sunflower Bean’s latest is a breakneck showcase of the trio’s talent. With each tune a high-octane chunk of the bold, New York indie the band have honed, it’s a triumph.

Northern Transmissions

Given this album is too close old rock hits, it still provides some fun moments and perhaps maybe a good vent Sunflower Bean to go back to exploring their sound.

God Is in the TV

Sunflower Bean's tunes can be as anthemic as Rainbow at times, and that seems to be the main touchstone on their King Of The Dudes EP.

69
Pitchfork

Though still a bit shaky and cloying, the New York band strikes a good chord with a power-pop sound and starts to carve out a space of their own.

PopMatters

King of the Dudes is well-made and sounds like a band who don't really care what they are expected to do next. But that screw-you-guys point of view cuts both ways.
