By this point, you have surely heard at least one of Day Wave’s songs. Getting frequent air time on SiriusXMU, Day Wave — aka Jackson Phillips — blends his 80’s lo-fi sound with vibrant melodies and personal lyrics that discuss solitude and introspective views on human interactions.
Day Wave just finished touring with The Shins, which included stops at Red Rocks, the Greek Theatre and Lollapalooza. He’ll be performing to more intimate venues on this leg of the tour, so it’s a great chance to see an emerging artist that has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in indie rock scale things back for his very own headlining show.
While everything you hear on Day Wave’s 2017 album, The Days We Had, is performed by Phillips himself, his live shows provide backing members to provide a full landscape of sounds that incorporate the many warm layers from his studio work.
