Day Wave crested five or six years too late to be on-trend — the former trend in question being dreamy, blissed-out, ’80s-inspired guitar pop performed by dudes with beachy band names — so instead, we just have to appreciate Jackson Phillips’ music for being good. And it music really is quite good, isn’t it? “Gone,” from Day Wave’s newly announced Hard To Read EP, is another shimmering delight from a dude who has proven adept in such endeavors. Check it out below via The FADER.
Hard To Read tracklist:
01 “Deadbeat Girl”
03 “Hard To Read”
Hard To Read is out 3/4 via Grand Jury. Pre-order it at iTunes. A physical version of Hard To Read packaged with Day Wave’s previous EP Headcase will be available for pre-order soon.
