Sunny Day In Glasgow

A Sunny Day In Glasgow have announced their first national tour in over four years (see below for dates and ticket links). Along with the tour announcement, the band also revealed the latest single from their forthcoming LP ‘Sea When Absent,’ which is due out on June 24th via Lefse Records. Take a listen to Bye Bye, Big Ocean (The End) below via Soundcloud.


A Sunny Day In Glasgow coverDuring the recording of ‘Sea When Absent,’ there was also a conscious effort to get away from aspects of recording that have defined this band in the past-namely heavily reverbed and buried vocals. Vocalists Jen Goma and Anne Fredrickson explored the possibilities of their abilities/talents. Jen took a central role in the making of this album, stepping up to write most of the lyrics and melodies. Anne also contributed melodies throughout the album and put her classical cello training to use adding string arrangements. Since 2009, Ben has resided in Sydney, Australia home and while he was down under, Josh Meakim was overseeing the recording sessions and adding all of the musical and production ideas he usually does in Philadelphia. The distance between Ben and the rest of the band also forced novel ways of building songs from across the world. Bassist Ryan Newmyer, in Brooklyn, was tasked with deconstructing and rebuilding several songs. Holding it all together is drummer Adam Herndon. “Sea When Absent” is ASDIG’s story for the milieu-a fever-dream about the now (or maybe a lucid dream about the fever-now) and a future possible set in pop-major.
