Jacco Gardner is a Dutch multi-instrumentalist whose baroque pop reminisces of late-era Beatles or anything by The Zombies. Adorned in hints of psychedelic pop, you’ll find everything from a harpsichord to a flute within Gardner’s new track “The Ballad of Little Jane”. This psych element comes through in his video for “Where Will You Go” as well; pairing vibrant colors with old footage. The sound is classic, for sure.
Gardner is only 24 years old, and when he’s not stretching minds with his solo project, he’s joining Hugo van de Poel as one half the duo that is The Skywalkers. Both artists flirt with baroque/psych pop but whereas Gardner’s solo work is a bit softer and substantially lighter, The Skywalkers are more a psychedelic freakbeat duo.
Jacco’s debut LP, Cabinet of Curiosities, is out February 12 on Trouble in Mind.
