California-based Jackson Phillips who makes music under his project Day Wave, hit us with his one-two punch of music in the form of his singles “Drag” and “Total Zombie”. Now, he’s knocked us out completely with his Headcase EP.
“Drag” is a song that I’ve listened to basically on repeat ever since I first heard the track. Guess what? I’m still not sick of it. I might listen to it on repeat for another five hours now. The song is warm, nostalgic, lonely and uplifting all at once.
This theme is present throughout the rest of the EP and is definitely what makes it special. With self-deprecating lyrics and upbeat dream pop instrumentals the EP is fit for your next favorite indie movie soundtrack. Listen to the EP below and buy your copy now via iTunes here.
