A Sunny Day in Glasgow

Sea When Absent


Jul 28, 2014 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

For a band whose members never seem to be in the same place at the same time, A Sunny Day in Glasgow manages to create a type of harmonious musical interface that makes their distance seem inconsequential. What separates the band’s fourth record from earlier material is that it explores sound in a way that the sextet had yet to go before. Perhaps this can be attributed to enlisting an outside producer in Jeff Zeigler, or to co-founder Ben Daniels allowing for more contributions from his bandmates. Either way, the band strung together a batch of songs that are as direct as they are challenging.

While reverb and fuzzy effects take a back seat this time around, it doesn’t mean the band has eschewed the neo-psychedelica or the shoegaze complexities that make their music so distinctive. Even out of their comfort zone, the band provides enough interesting twists and turns to keep you on edge. The result is their most comprehensive and complete album to date.
