The wait is over. Briston Maroney has released his debut full-length album. The record arrives complete with a feature-length visual album directed by Joey Brodnax, limited vinyl variants, exclusive merch, and a stand alone video for "Bottle Rocket".
If you are based in Nashville you may have already seen or heard the album. Sunflower: The Visual Album (below) premiered in full format on NECAT – the Nashville Public TV Network, and has been in rotation since then.
"But why can't I be someone else tonight" pleads Maroney on the track "Why". We've all been here, experienced it in one way or another, so what makes this line different from other lyrics. It's that the entire record of Sunflower is full of these eerily relatable moments.
Yet, painfully honest lyrics aren't all that makes up Sunflower. The album is full of different moods, emotions, and energies that transport you elsewhere. If you caught his live set on BandsInTown or are looking forward to seeing him at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival you probably already know.
It's been a journey for Briston Maroney to get to where he is now, much like it was for the album. It's a purposeful piece of art as opposed to much of the mindless content we are fed nowadays.
