Jackson Philips, aka Day Wave, recently dropped by the Rolling Stone office to perform his new track, "Something Here", from the forthcoming LP The Days We Had.
"Something Here", released late-January, takes a fuzzy skew on the usual blissed-out pop path, with the Oakland-based songwriter pitting the sun-chasing optimist against a grittier edge. Here, however, reduced to bare-bones acoustic, Phillips elevates the track's darker underside, absorbing the hopeful gaze under a sombre tone.
The track follows on from the album's lead single "Wasting Time", which surfaced in November. The Days We Had is due May 5th, locally via I Oh You/Liberator.
