Britta Phillips is happy to share the video for her single “Daydream.” American Songwriter said the single “perfectly encapsulates a lush vibe both in its evocative title and music that floats and gently glides above an overdubbed sweeping, swelling wave of mellow orchestrated synths and guitars.” It was named a “Top Tune” by KCRW who also called the track “swoon-worthy.” The video, directed by
Jen Campbell, premiered on Vevo and you can watch it here (cleared to post / share).

“Rife with the gossamer, exotic melodies so synonymous with Phillips other musical projects…”Luck Or Magic” allows Phillips to shine, exhibiting that beyond being a fine vocalist and instrumentalist, she’s also a superb songwriter. AV Club
“Britta Phillips’ first solo venture is a remarkably spacious affair…comprising both original material and obscure covers, its dreamy designs find the tone and execution consistently in sync….be it luck or magic, Phillips’ finesse is evident throughout.’ Relix
“a cool, mellow, and lovely record” Under The Radar
“It’s got a modern update on classic pop, kind of like if Nancy Sinatra’s ’60s material was recorded by a ’90s trip-pop band.” Brooklyn Vegan
“exploring the desirable allure of spending time alone with another person, the song evokes a feeling of serenity through Phillips’ romantic voice and the sound of her nylon acoustic guitar. It feels blissful, like the promise of endless possibilities at the dawn of a summer day.” Stereogum on “One Fine Summer Morning”
