A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Nitetime Rainbows EP
Last year’s Ashes Grammar was a master class in dreamy soundscapes and electro-pop wizardry, and here A Sunny Day In Glasgow have returned with an EP featuring a rejigged, and unbelievably more enchanting version of one of the standout tracks from that album, ‘Nitetime Rainbows’. This seven-track release takes in some brand new songs as well, namely the partner piece ‘Daytime Rainbows’ with its lashings of electric guitar and lovely female melodies. ‘So Bloody, So Tight’ has been described by the band as their favourite song yet, and no wonder. Its driving beat is buried under a sea of fuzzy effects and washes of acoustic guitar and synth, hopefully looking forward to what may appear on their next full-length. There are also three remixes of the title track, the highlight coming from experimental folkster Benoit Pioulard, with his ‘acid wash edit’, which basically turns the whole sound up a notch and creates four minutes of blissful, noise-soaked ambience.
