At their core, A Sunny Day in Glasgow are a dream-pop band and "Ashes Grammar" is a dream-pop album but even at their most accessible, there’s an indescribable otherworldliness flowing through the band’s music. Often described as a marriage of My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins and Aphex Twin, their latest album further separates them from the pack as they've truly come into their own. The music is all at once joyous, insecure, and blissed-out -- and sounds nothing like we’ve heard from A Sunny Day in Glasgow before. Includes "Shy", "Failure" and "Ashes Maths".
A SUNNY DAY IN GLASGOW “Scribble Mural Comic Journal"In their debut album “Scribble Mural Comic Journal", Philadelphia’s A Sunny Day in Glasgow use mandolins, banjos, noise, samplers, lots of cuttin’ n pastin’ and all of the normal band instruments plus lush female vocals and dancey rhythms to make dreamy pop music. The album succeeds in marrying Cocteau Twins’ other-wordliness, Jesus and Mary Chain white noise, the best aspects of early Aphex Twin, and the jangle of “Strawberry Wine” era My Bloody Valentine to create a sublime pop music for fans of early '90s Creation records, Sonic Cathedral, Deerhunter, Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, Seefeel and My Bloody Valentine, even Panda Bear or 65daysofstatic. Highly recommended
