I LIKE THAT | DAY WAVE – ‘GONE’
Along with the announcement of a new EP today, Jackson Phillips – better known as Day Wave, has also shared a brand new single titled, ‘Gone’.
Following the success of 2015’s Headcase EP, ‘Gone’ is full of hazy guitars and synth lines that playfully bounce off each other, without completely overpowering the song. Unlike many other dream-pop acts, especially in their first efforts, Phillips is totally comfortable putting his vocals at the forefront of the song and not covering them in unrecognisable reverb. It is this technique that allows an almost, pop-punk element to be added to the music, albeit subtly.
Day Waves second EP, Hard To Read is due March 4 via Grand Jury (US)/Fat Possum(UK/EU)/I OH YOU(AUS/NZ), but you can stream ‘Gone’, right now!
