Biography

Philadelphia, United States (2005 – present)

A Sunny Day in Glasgow began as a collaboration between friends Ben Daniels and Ever Nalens, both of whom had recently returned to Philadelphia after several years in the UK. The band name came from Nalens, who had been living in Glasgow, and Daniels kept it after Nalens left the project. In 2006, Daniels asked his twin sisters, Robin and Lauren, to start singing on the songs they had been working on. In March of that year the trio self-released The Sunniest Day Ever EP to great acclaim from college radio stations and blogs. Their debut release, Scribble Mural Comic Journal, came out February 2007 and received favorable reviews from Pitchfork and Drowned in Sound among others. Scribble Mural Comic Journal was recorded with one microphone in a bedroom in West Philly and pushed the boundaries of dream pop often drawing comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins. During the summer of 2007 the band toured the United States including in-studios on KEXP and Radio K and released a handmade tour only EP titled Tout New Age which was subsequently released as a digitally only EP. A year later the band emerged for a performance at the Whitney Museum as part of the Wordless Music Series and an in-studio performance on WNYC. A month later they toured across the UK and France which was celebrated with a string of 7”s coming out labels as varied as Slumberland, Disjuncture and Georgraphic North.

    sea when absent is sooooo good [4] A Sunny Day In Glasgow always were something special for me (probably because they're strange as hell), but SWA is one of the best albums I ever heard. Pure gold.

    The modern Cocteau Twins? Probably!

    No Death EP is very good; seek it out, if at all possible. Great compliment to Sea When Absent, which is already one of the year's finest.

    I'm listening to this band while staring naked lapdancing chicks in a webcam porn gif banner ad. Suddenly they don't seem so trashy anymore.

    "sounds like beach boys deconstructed" the beach boys already deconstructed themselves on Smiley Smile if you ask me

    Well if you hear this 'problem' in the majority of bands in a given style... maybe that says the style just isn't your thing? Seems to be a major aspect of the sound. For me, their best album Ashes Grammar decays melody constantly and it's one of the loveliest things about it!

    Can't wait to hear them live. $8 shows are great.

    optimistic_tour , heh. I'm not pouring hate or something, but this band has the same problem (as to me), as the biggest part of prog-rock bands -- melody breaks down every time they try to make it sound more interesting, so they don't transformate it -- just make another one. I think it's a composition sickness, I think.

    "sounds like beach boys deconstructed" this.. is.. kinda part of the appeal.. no? :]

    new album is a nice shift in style but I prefer the dreamier route they took on ashes grammar and autumn, again
