The A Sunny Day in Glasgow Mus-O-Meter

Ask any musician how he would describe his music, and most of the time he's rather you just listen to it.

We understand, and that's why we've created the Mus-O-Meter, a guide to understanding a band's sound through other bands sounds!

This week, we take a look at A Sunny Day in Glasgow and the band's new EP, "Nitetime Rainbows.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow burst on the dream-pop, shoegaze scene in 2009 with its sophomore album, “Ashes Grammar,” a sprawling collection of experimental noise-pop. The band’s recent EP is a continuation of that album — the leftovers, so to speak. But to really get a sense of what it’s all about, the band can only be described through the musical-mathematical science that goes into our exclusive mus-o-meter:

Take the jarring guitar licks of Jesus and Mary Chain’s 1985 record “Pyschocandy,” then add...

the detached vocals and heady haziness of My Bloody Valentine’s 1991 album, “Loveless.” Then add...

Cocteau Twins’ atmospheric, non-lyrical female vocal stylings on “Head Over Heels.” The sum?

A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s “Nitetime Rainbows.”
