Sunflower Bean are back with their first new music since their February 2016 debut Human Ceremony. The New York dream-pop trio—made up of drummer Jacob Faber, vocalist/bassist Julia Cumming and vocalist/guitarist Nick Kivlen—have signed to Mom + Pop Records and shared new single “I Was a Fool,” with a prom-inspired, Apple Music-exclusive music video to match.

Kivlen explained the song’s genesis in a statement: “I Was A Fool” is one of those songs that seemingly crept up from nowhere and into our practice space. It was a special moment between the three of us, Julia and I both improvised the lyrics. It feels like far longer, but it’s been nearly two years since we’ve put new music into the world. I think this song is a good example of how we’ve grown as a band, while still staying true to the band that first played together back in high school.

Despite its blissful drift, “I Was a Fool” finds Sunflower Bean at their sharpest, portending a quite triumphant return. Cumming and Kivlen trade off vocals from verse to chorus, lamenting the hazards of love over a layered cloud of melodic guitars, driving bass and jangling percussion. “I was a fool who lost his head,” sings Kivlen, making regret sound surprisingly liberating. If this is what losing one’s head sounds like, we’ll gladly part with ours.

Sunflower Bean have a handful of headlining tour dates on the docket, including stops in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Francisco. They’ve also set a fall U.K. tour supporting Wolf Alice,
