DAY WAVE RELEASES “SOMETHING HERE (ACOUSTIC)”
U.S. TOUR WITH THE SHINS KICKS OFF SEPTEMBER 23
INCLUDES SHOWS AT THE GREEK THEATRE IN LOS ANGELES, CA AND RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATRE IN MORRISON, CO
PERFORMING AT LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FESTIVAL AND AUSTIN CITY LIMITS
August 25, 2017 — Los Angeles, CA — Less than a month before hitting the road with The Shins for U.S. tour dates, Day Wave today releases “Something Here (Acoustic)”: LISTEN HERE.
“Something Here” is the first single from Day Wave’s acclaimed debut album, The Days We Had [May 5, Harvest Records]. Of the song’s release earlier this year, Consequence of Sound wrote, “Day Wave delivers another dream pop gem…a bass-led verse that gives way an ocean of synths and twinkly guitars.” Paste praised the track as “a wonderful sign of things to come,” and Stereogum agreed, calling it a “polished and driving dream-pop track.” Now with over 5.6 million Spotify streams and counting on the original track, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jackson Phillips has put a new spin on the song with this new stripped-back version.
Having recently wrapped a full-scale North American summer headline tour, Day Wave will join The Shins and Spoon for their upcoming U.S. tour.The run kicks off September 23 in Redmond, WA at Marymoor Park and will bring Day Wave to iconic venues and amphitheaters such as The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on September 29 and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on October 5. Among these dates, Day Wave will also be playing sets at Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas and Austin City Limits. Tickets are on sale now and full routing can be found below.
The Days We Had continues to attract praise from fans and critics alike. Reviewing the album, Entertainment Weekly wrote, “[Phillips’] sharp ear for melody – coupled with a voice that evokes Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo at his most romantic – elevates Day Wave above other acts in the crowded genre. His lovely full-length debut is also his most accomplished work yet, polished with an ’80s sheen that never sounds tired or dated.” Paste praised, “Day Wave has cultivated a winning and remarkably consistent formula…one of the more memorable debuts of 2017.” Harper’s Bazaar highlighted the album in their 22 Albums You Need To Listen To list, describing the music as, “the kind of lazy, beachy vibe you’ll be tuning into throughout the summer.”
