    Day Wave is the musical project of Jackson Phillips, who writes fuzzy, shoe-gazey power pop that evokes Diiv via New Order. We loved their set at Lollapalooza last year, as well as the tracks Phillips has shared from Day Wave’s forthcoming debut LP, The Days We Had.

    The latest, “Untitled”, is the best yet. Heavy on warm synths, rhythmic strums, and blissed-out vocals, the track is a sweet, blurry daydream that’s suited to any season. Listen to it below.


    “A lot of this record was written around the time of my first two EPs, but this song is one of the exceptions,” Phillips told Paste. “I wrote it just a few days before I went into the studio to record the album. I’m glad this one made it onto the final track listing, it’s one of my favorites.”

    The Days We Had drops on May 5th. Check out tracklist below, along with Day Wave’s 2017 tour dates.
