Next week Tourist kicks off a seven-date North American tour with a Wednesday (February 20) appearance at Sonia. And by the time British producer Will Phillips rolls into Cambridge, we should all be well-versed in his new record under the Tourist moniker: An atmospheric and unpredictable 10-track electronic-pop odyssey titled Everyday, which hits today via Monday Records. “’Everyday’ is my attempt to make an album that reflects my life in a way that is hopefully sincere and honest,” Phillips says. “I’m happy now, and much of this music is simply the result of me enjoying the creative process and exploring how sounds can make me feel. It’s about being vulnerable, unsure, joyous, bored, wistful and everything in-between that doesn’t fit into being happy or sad. It’s me embracing my everyday experience of being someone who can’t quite believe how lucky he is to do this for a living, and reflecting on what it is to be a husband, brother, son and self.” Let this one ride out in completion to enjoy full emotive excess.
