Few new artists were more impressionable in 2015 than Day Wave. Jackson Phillips filtered classic pop hooks through a bevy of vintage synthesizers and arpeggiated guitar melodies, drawing comparisons to the Beach Boys, Joy Division, and early Cloud Nothings as he released a consistently-solid series of singles that would eventually be collected on his Headcase EP. Day Wave will release a new EP, Hard To Read, on March 4th; its second single, “Stuck,” couples a timeless chorus with increasingly adroit songwriting that cautiously peels back summertime’s billowing curtain.
