A Sunny Day In Glasgow
Sea When Absent

It’s been a while but A Sunny Day In Glasgow are back with ‘Sea When Absent’, their third album proper. ‘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 album ‘Ashes Grammar’ and a move towards a post-millennial, upfront pop sound. ‘Sea When Absent’ is simultaneously A Sunny Day In Glasgow at their most accessible, most insane and most rock. Appropriately for new beginnings, ‘Sea When Absent’ marks a number of firsts for the band - it’s the first album recorded in a ‘real’ studio by someone who isn’t Ben or Josh, the first album not written mostly by Ben, the first album with next-to-no reverb and the first time in A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s history that it has existed as an actual band (and not just Ben or Josh playing everything). There was also a conscious effort to get away from aspects of recording that have defined this band in the pasts, namely heavily reverbed and buried vocals. Vocalists Jen Goma and Anne Fredrickson have beautiful voices and it was time to explore the possibilities of their abilities / talents. Jen took on a central role in the making of this album, stepping up to write most of the lyrics and melodies. Annie also contributed melodies throughout the album and put her classical cello training to use adding string arrangements.
