Sea When Absent is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band A Sunny Day in Glasgow. It was released on June 24, 2014 by Lefse Records. Sea When Absent was financed by a fan pledge through Kickstarter. Streaming the album through the Pitchfork Advance service was possible until the date of its release. While it was widely reported that the band members were never in the same room while making Sea When Absent, the band has said that this was not the case.

A Sunny Day In Glasgow. Release date: 17 June 2014. In the grand tradition of many a forward-thinking pop record, Sea When Absent is an album of parts. It is a collection of moments throughout which you look forward to the sudden blossom of a hook on I’m A Wrecker, the magisterial, swaying pomp that begins Golden Waves (the album’s final track, and its sheer high point) and the blankets of harmony that wrap its middle. You find yourself looking forward to these widened vistas and sudden climaxes even on a second or third listen

A Sunny Day in Glasgow also take quite a few risks here, splattering Sea When Absent with an endless supply of style-shifts and ‘that could work’ ideas. It’s unbelievably jarring, but recovers swimmingly when the guitar reemerges, replenishing what was lost and constructing even higher waves of sound in glorious epiphany

With their fourth album, A Sunny Day In Glasgow are mounting a fierce campaign to propel their sparkling shoegaze into a poppier stratosphere. Sea When Absent’ has the same beautifully overlapping vocals as Cocteau Twins and the same mess of melodies as My Bloody Valentine, only less obtuse and a hell of a lot happier. Highlights are the stunning ‘Bye Bye, Big Ocean’, which piles tight lyrical hooks into post-rock guitars, and ‘The Body, It Bends’, on which vocalists Annie Fredrickson and Jen Goma deliver an irresistible (if indecipherable) duet over pristine synths

This week A Sunny Day In Glasgow unleashed their fourth full length 'Sea When Absent' (through Lefse Records). 'Crushin' and 'Bye Bye, Big Ocean (The End)' hinted at an ambitious record. There’s a lot to digest here and that’s the album’s biggest strength and weakness, it overwhelming. The multi-layered textures and competing melodies work well for shoegaze acts that avoid obvious pop hooks but ‘Sea When Absent’ tries to do both, at once. For the most part it works and that’s what makes it exciting but it isn’t always a smooth ride. That aside, A Sunny Day In Glasgow inject enough personality and creativity to draw from psych and shoegaze influences without falling into genre trappings.

Love this album, but this pressing doesn't sound quite right. Overly processed, compressed & digital. Think the Capitol pressings of Radiohead for reference.
