A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Crushin'

A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s brilliant new record Sea When Absent drops on June 24, and now you can hear the second single “Crushin’” over at Pitchfork!

“Crushin’” is the emotional baseline in the vast majority of A Sunny Day in Glasgow songs—in lieu of decipherable lyrics, the Philadelphia band’s woozy daydreams present love as more of a playful, conceptual thing, a daydream or some other kind of passing fancy that lets you know why there’s an slangy apostrophe rather than a proper gerund…just crushin’, no big deal, y’know? -Ian Cohen

Pre-order Sea When Absent and get ready for this thing to give you the best head massage.
