We have been fans of Day Wave since day one. Jackson Phillips (AKA Day Wave) debut LP The Days We Had, the albums is full of dream-pop, sunshine sound, emotional and honest,  Jackson Phillips has been making music for a long time, the Oakland based musician came to our attention in 2014 when his dream-pop sound captured our imaginations and made us a little queasy with idea of butterfly sunshine, and candy floss love. It felt like a first date in many a confusing way. Phillip’s displayed on several occasions with tracks such as ‘Drag’, ‘Total Zombie’ and ‘Come Home Now’ his incredible ability to write piercing hooks and simplistic, heartfelt pop songs. They all felt like love letters ‘To Jackson, From Jackson’. There was something special in the simplicity, but this debut LP, released via Fiction Records and out now, was his next big step.

The ethereal pop bliss he brings is what dreams are intricately sewn up with and the lyrics tend to paint the skies of them.

He has now released ‘Untitled’ another alt-pop gem and perfect for a beautiful day like today. The track is released alongside the new LP The Days We Had which is out now on Fiction Records.

We were worried that Day Wave would never match up to their earlier efforts as they had a lo-fi veracity that is hard to do twice, but tracks such as ‘Gone’ and ‘Drag’ are now a golden memory, while ‘Untitled’ and ‘Something Here’ are the present. Phillips and co have made another powerful step into the limelight.

Day Waves is the personal project of Jackson Phillips, an Oakland California based twenty something who’s sound is summer surf indie at it’s finest. Lackadaisical reverb filled guitar drifts over steady tight drumming

Day Wave the solo project of Jackson Phillips who makes dreamy, melancholy jams. If you missed his debut EP, Headcase, this year, now is the perfect time to get caught up before he puts out his next tracks in early 2016. If you love Real Estate and Best Coast, Day Wave is the happy medium between the two.

If you want it to be summer year-round, Day Wave is the guy for you. Simple and straightforward, his music is bright with the right amount of surf vibes.
