Day Wave - The Days We Had mp3 album

Day Wave - The Days We Had.

Day Wave has consistently shown that he's more than comfortable writing warm synth-led alt-rock radio songs, but it's even better when he goes in a different direction. His back catalogue is chock full of these upbeat dream-pop songs and for the most part, The Days We Had does little to deviate from his work released over the last couple of years. He adds little flourishes here and there, like the All I Want by LCD Soundsystem-like guitar line on Home or the heavy guitar feedback at the beginning of Something Here, recalling Beach House’s Sparks. But at the end of the day, Day Wave’s march towards his first album is a path marked by subtle progression rather than a distinct change in sound, resulting in a fully realized debut.

The Days We Had. Critic Score. It’s precisely the few times he strays from his formula that gives The Days We Had more depth, ultimately resulting in one of the more memorable debuts of 2017.

Previous Day Wave songs sounded like a glossy update of the kind of beachy '80s-damaged pop Captured Tracks bands like Beach Fossils were known for; now Phillips has gone in for a larger, slicker, more pop-friendly approach. His vocals soar over the pristine layers of guitars and synths, the bass and drums have a driving power, and the melodies have an aching, melodramatic quality that would be the perfect soundtrack for a heartbroken montage scene from a lost John Hughes film. The Days We Had takes advantage of the sonic upgrade and bumps everything up a notch, from songs to vocals and everything in between. In one easy step, Day Wave went from being a promising band to a fully realized project with an impressive album under its belt.

Day Wave’s debut full length effort ‘The Days We Had’ is one of those records: everything about the album is satisfyingly well done. Jackson Phillips’ solo project goes for a dream pop sound reminiscent of Wild Nothing and Pity Sex, and effortlessly accomplishes it. Every element present on ‘The Days We Had’ adds to the nostalgic sound of the record. The airy synths throughout the album, the subtle ‘oh-oh’-sounds on opener ‘Something Here’, the upbeat catchiness of the melodies on ‘Promises’: it’s all incredibly well placed
