Two new developments from A Sunny Day In Glasgow today: First, the band has released a video for Sea When Absent track “Crushin’.” Directed by Herb Shellenberger and Michael Thomas Vassallo, it stars Jordyn Karpinski as a woman in the wilderness who’s haunted by cut-out faces. Watch it.
Secondly, the band announced their participation in the limited edition cassette series Sketch For Winter and unveiled one of the new songs from their cassette, “Shut Your Mouth, It’s Christmas.” The monthly series will run from December to March, with one artist per month releasing a winter-themed cassette EP. Each EP will only be available in a limited run of 300 copies. The other three participating artists are Pan American, All The Saints’ Matt Lambert, and Moon Diagrams (Moses Archuleta of Deerhunter). A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s offering is subtitled New Christmas Classics, and all the songs are holiday-themed, including a cover of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Hear “Shut Your Mouth, It’s Christmas” below.
