A Sunny Day in Glasgow

Brother and sister trio A Sunny Day in Glasgow write beautiful dreampop that surrounds the listener in a pulsingly ethereal blanket of sounds. Note: their debut album, Scribble Mural Comic Journal, is not a chill album--it isn't something you just pop in and listen to on a Sunday morning. This is introspective music, music with which to empty yourself (as Darl might say) of the extraneous parts going on around you.

Upon first listen, one might be prompted to shout a prominent "huh? I don't get it." In fact, that was my first impression. And then I listened closer. Play your speakers loud. Pick out the different parts. There's a lot going on here, and it would be a shame to miss out on it. Take a listen to "5:15 Train" and listen for the background vocals--it's other worldly in the good way. Or queue up "No. 6 Von Karman Street" which is perhaps the most intoxicating of all the tracks with its icy synth pop feel.

So go and check out Scribble Music Comic Journal.
Have a listen to "No. 6 Von Karman Street" (4.5/5)
"The Best Summer Ever"
