Day Wave Debuts “Cold Like Me”
Day Wave has shared the Deluxe Edition of his 2022 album, Pastlife via [PIAS] Recordings. The release features the L.A. artist’s new track, “Cold Like Me”, a cover of The Cranberries’ 1993 hit, “Linger” and a reworking of the album-track, “See You When The End’s Near”.
Beyond the new Deluxe Edition tracks, Pastlife includes “Apartment Complex” featuring Hazel English and the original version of “See You When The End’s Near” feat. KennyHoopla. Past singles “Where Do You Go” and “Before You Knew.” Day Wave AKA: Jackson Phillips, has also been busy producing for a new generation of indie acts like Hana Vu, Saba, Hazel English, KennyHoopla and more.
For Jackson, as for most others stuck at home, the pandemic has been a time of “ceaseless looking backward,” trying to find his footing as a musician years removed from the moving and shaking of touring and creating life. “With this record, it just feels like I’m stepping into this thing from my past,” says Phillips. “I started Day Wave when I was 25, and now I’m 32. I guess I didn’t really realize how much was going to change in that time.”
Some of those changes are routine, like the splintering off of friends into their careers and personal relationships. For Phillips, still a working musician, that meant a degree of alienation. But the deeper thread is the existential alienation created by the simple passage of time. “I kinda thought that being 25 was just gonna stay like that forever, and then it didn’t,” he says.
