Philadelphia’s experimental dream pop act A Sunny Day In Glasgow just released a new music video for “Double Dutch,” a song from their latest album Sea When Absent. The short, little-over-a-minute video fixates on Ked-laden feet dancing sporadically to the very fun track, almost as if there were jump ropes skipping beneath them. Continue reading →
Dreamy electronic pop collective A Sunny Day in Glasgow this week released another new track called “Almost Like Emotion (The Drop).” Earlier this year, the band released “Bye Bye Big Ocean (The End)”, from their newest album Sea When Absent which came out late June. They then followed it with an euphoric video accompaniment for “In Love with Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing)”.
The new song, with a somewhat shorter title, is the first track off of their newest EP NO DEATH. Continue reading →
After the release of their new LP Sea When Absent earlier this week, A Sunny Day in Glasgow has shared a new video for “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing).”
With an unquestionable sense of euphoria, the video is an art collage of outdoor scenes, cutting between shots of leaves, clouds and the band playing with some kids on a playground as vocalist Jen Goma sings “I feel so happy I’m in love with useless.” The new record was recorded with Jeff Zeigler at his Uniform Recording studio here in Philadelphia and it is the bi-continental outfit’s first effort of new material in four years, following 2010′s Autumn Again.
A Sunny Day in Glasgow have released a third track from their forthcoming Sea When Absent LP, the band’s third effort overall following 2010′s Autumn, Again. It’s sonically darker than “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry In the Tradition of Passing),” with frayed, white noise static under a whirlwind of synths and heavily reverbed vocals. Sea Went Absent will be released on June 24th through Lefse, and A Sunny Day In Glasgow close out a month-long tour at Johnny Brenda’s on July 27th with Pattern Is Movement; tickets and information can be found here. Listen to “Bye Bye Big Ocean (The End)” below.
First, they made us fall “In Love With Useless” back in January and now A Sunny Day in Glasgow has released a new short clip for “Nitetime, waving”. With the word “time” appearing on-screen at least 15 times, the dream popsters could be hinting at how long it’s been (4 years) since they’ve released a new record. The band says album number three will arrive this year, but have been tight-lipped about details such as the release date or title. The follow-up to 2010′s Autumn, Again is on it’s way so stay tuned and check out the clip below.
Dream-pop band A Sunny Day in Glasgow are back with a new track titled “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry in The Tradition of Passing)”. The band released their second album Autumn, Again back in 2010 and are currently mixing its follow-up. Their new ode to sheer joy and subsequent appreciation of life’s most ordinary things features polyphonic harmonies reminiscent of The Cranberries. It’s dreamy, pensive and has a melodic structure that’s designed to make you too fall in love with useless and the Philly natives themselves. Listen below.
