A Sunny Day in Glasgow is a post-nation musical outfit. Its members live in three different cities and two different hemispheres but, the band began in a Philadelphia bedroom in 2006. Back from several years in the UK, Ben Daniels enlisted the help of his twin sisters to sing on a bunch of songs he had written. The Sunniest Day Ever EP was the product of this experiment. Ben soon moved to Montreal from where the band released their debut LP, Scribble Mural Comic Journal. SMCJ, recorded for exactly no money and with one microphone, pushed the boundaries of both dream pop and DIY and allowed the band to tour North America and Europe, including stops at the Whitney Museum, KEXP, and WNYC.
Featuring shared girl-boy vocals, United Ghosts blends a seemingly dizzying collection of influences that range from Kraut-rock and electro to classic psychedelia and shoegaze into a cohesive sound that celebrates its influences, while keeping one eye firmly set towards the future.
Swooning guitar pop built on bleary shoegaze riffs, new wave basslines and glimmering synths, the new band from Abe Vigoda guitarist Juan Velasquez, Marc Steinberg (vocals/keyboards) and Victor Herrera (bass) write soundtracks to falling in love with strangers on a train, sleepless L.A. nights and wasted days.
