Day Wave 

Playing a free show at Amoeba on Haight Street.

Originally from Los Angeles, multi-instrumentalist Day Wave (aka Jackson Phillips) has called Oakland home for the past two years. While in LA, he was known as part of the electronic duo Carousel. Upon moving to Oakland, he developed his solo pop project, Day Wave, which combines soft, dreamy instrumentation with hooky song structures. While Day Wave’s new EP, Hard to Read, contains several certified earworms, he mostly uses his catchy songs as a vehicle for parsing through grief and longing. Sunny, lo-fi synth and guitar riffs and surf rock harmonies contrast with Day Wave’s often poetic, melancholic lyrics. Currently, the singer-songwriter is promoting Hard to Read, which he recently released on vinyl as a double EP that also includes his 2015 project, Headcase. Catch him playing a free show and signing copies of the record at Amoeba in San Francisco on Sunday, March 13.
