A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s most recent album runs only 30 minutes, but its bright and dreamy arrangements beg to be on constant rotation. That’s the beauty of the Philadelphia-born band. Nuanced synth and smooth guitar lines make A Sunny Day’s songs a quick crawl to upbeat satisfaction, but elements of noise-pop help this shoegaze act stand out in an otherwise overpopulated genre. On its 2015 double EP Planning Weed Like It’s Acid/Life Is Loss, the band took a risk. While the creation of 2014’s Sea When Absent took four years and several lineup changes, the 2015 EP seems like a continuous, experimental jam session with an impeccably tight crew. The album might only last 30 minutes, but a longer Sunny Day in Glasgow live set is, like the band’s name, something to look forward to. A Sunny Day In Glasgow performs with EZTV and Outer Spaces at 9 p.m. at Comet Ping Pong, 5037 Connecticut Ave. NW. $12. (202) 364-0404. cometpingpong.com.
