A Sunny Day In Glasgow – “Double Dutch” Video

Here’s an exceedingly literal video for A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s “Double Dutch.” Directors Jen Goma and Luisa Conlon set the Sea When Absent track — barely over a minute long — to images of hopping, skipping feet that seem to be doing jump rope tricks without the jump rope.

Stream A Sunny Day In Glasgow Sea When Absent

The Philadelphia dream-pop group a Sunny Day In Glasgow specializes in smeary melodic head-rushes, and until recently, you might have thought that they’d made their last gorgeously fizzy sound-explosion. The band’s last album, Autumn, Again, came out four years ago. But next week, they’ll finally follow it up with the new Sea When Absent. We’ve… More »

Q&A: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s Kip Berman On Days Of Abandon, The Band’s New Lineup, And The Folly Of Double Vinyl

Judging from what little we’ve heard so far — lead single “Simple And Sure,” a snippet of intro “Art Smock” — the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s upcoming third album Days Of Abandon marks a significant scaling back from the arena shoegaze grandeur of 2011’s Belong.

A Sunny Day In Glasgow “So Bloody, So Tight” Video, Fleetwood Mac Cover

The dreamy Philadelphia swirl-pop outfit A Sunny Day In Glasgow put out the record I most often cited as “most overlooked” last year with Ashes Grammar, a 22-track portrait full of soft vocals floating in lush soundscapes and shifting rhythms, stitched together by scene-setting, gauzy, often synthetic interstitials. It requires a full listening, but i… More »
