LISTEN: “Gone” by Day Wave
Oakland-based Day Wave (a.k.a. Jackson Phillips) popped back on to my radar with news of his highly anticipated second EP, Hard To Read, and a listen to his new single “Gone”. Released on March 4th via Fat Possum, the EP will be available digitally, and as a combined physical release packaged with last year’s critically acclaimed Headcase EP.
Hard To Read was performed, produced, mixed and mastered by Day Wave directly to tape, resulting in a gorgeous 5-track EP bursting with California sunshine, packed with “ethereal, lo-fi vocals, captivating hooks, and celestial guitars awash with subtle synths”.
