Published Jan 15, 2010Philadelphia, PA left-field shoegazers A Sunny Day in Glasgow are on a bit of a roll right now. Their first two albums, 2007's universally lauded debut, Scribble Mural Comic Journal, and the stunning 2009 follow-up, Ashes Grammar, both got Exclaim! recommendations, and their limited run of 250 coloured vinyl copies of the latter sold out in no time. Suddenly, 2010 doesn't look too shabby for the band either.
A Sunny Day in Glasgow will release a new EP, titled Nitetime Rainbows, on March 2 via Mis Ojos Discos. The EP is made up of songs from the Ashes Grammar recording sessions, a few new songs and some remixes from Benoît Pioulard, Ezekiel Honig and the Buddy System. The band's press release states that "these are the sounds of a band falling in love, a band having fun."
A Sunny Day in Glasgow have also announced a massive spring 2010 tour in support of the EP, swinging through Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto. They'll also join Vancouver garage poppers Japandroids for a couple of shows along the way.
And one last thing: that limited-edition, coloured-vinyl version of Ashes Grammar that's "completely sold out"? The band have announced on their MySpace that they've kept a few to sell on tour.
