A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Sea When Absent

Out of Stock

InfoCD & LP4th August

It's been a while, but A Sunny Day in Glasgow are back with Sea When Absent, their third proper album. Sea When Absent situates itself in the science fiction that is life in 2014 and goes looking for what new myths might speak to us in our post-Fukushima, post-quantum, post-everything world.

Recorded over a year and half with Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile) at his Uniform Recording Studios in Eraserhood Philadelphia, the album is a conscious move away from the bright-dark, ambient maximalism of the band's acclaimed double LP, Ashes Grammar, and a move towards a post-millennial, up-front pop sound. Sea When Absent is simultaneously A Sunny Day in Glasgow at their most accessible, most insane, and most rock.

The first single, "In Love With Useless"?, which was released earlier this year received Pitchfork's "Best New Track"? distinction. The album recently received the same 'best new music' accolade with a huge 8.5 review, I believe the highest of the year so far.
