That’s All That Love Is

A Sunny Day in Glasgow “Crushin'”

I’ve been listening to A Sunny Day in Glasgow for a long time, and I think they are always at their best when Ben Daniels takes a relatively conventional sort of song and then cracks it apart and rearranges the layers without totally sacrificing the form of it. The core of “Crushin'” – the vocals, the bass, a keyboard motif – is very pop, but everything that orbits the main melodies feels unstable. The song makes you feel like you’re standing in place, but the ground keeps moving beneath you. There’s always a sense of being a sensitive, passive person in ASDIG’s music, but this feels less like you’re being acted upon and more like you’re just lost in a feeling. And in this case, that feeling would be sweet, confusing love.

Buy it from Amazon.
