Day Wave will release his second EP Hard To Read on 4 March and earlier this week, he continued to get things fired up by releasing his new single Stuck which Zane Lowe listed as his Beats 1 World Record.
Recorded, produced, mixed and mastered directly to tape by the man (aka Jackson Phillips) himself, Hard to Read is a lo-fi gem, brimming with lingering hooks, gentle melodies and low key synths – the perfect soundtrack to a hazy, summer day in his homestate of California.
The new collection, which also features lead single Gone, will also be available to purchase in physical format as a combined double set with Day Wave’s critically acclaimed 2015 release Headcase. Plus, next month you can catch him kicking off festival season with his SXSW live debut before he heads out on a tour of North America and Europe.
