Published Jan 06, 2014Dreamy Philadelphia band A Sunny Day in Glasgow began a Kickstarter campaign for a new album way back in the spring of 2012, and they estimated at the time that the album would "ship in either late 2012 or early 2013." Now, the album is finally finished, and the band have shared a video for the song "In Love with Useless (The Timeless Geometry in the Tradition of Passing)."
The five-minute song is an ascendent dream-pop anthem that overlays shape-shifting rhythms with blurry instrumentation and swaths of angelic vocal harmonies.
As for the accompanying clip, it isn't so much a proper music video as a disorienting haze of fast-moving photographs. The band explained on YouTube, "Maybe don't watch this if you are sensitive to strobes or get dizzy easily. It's not a video for the song, but something to look at while you listen."
There's no word as to exactly when the album will drop, but the band wrote a Facebook message back in September explaining that the LP was "100% finished" and had been sent to get mastered.
