From the moment I began Jacco Gardner’s new single ‘Hypnophobia’, I immediately felt as if I had been transported to a different time and place.  In this psychosis, I am wearing a dashiki and bobbing my head to new sounds being played over the radio. Except, this is 2015, and Jacco Gardner’s new single is definitely form fitting for our time. ‘Hypnophobia’ starts off with a very hypnotic melody that circulates throughout the entire single. After a few light spins, a heavy bass sets in and the rhythmic guitar gets stronger and stronger. I’m reminded of the Mamas and The Papas until an even heavier bass rift comes forth and I feel like I’ve skipped time towards an early set of Pink Floyd. Before I realize it, I am absentmindedly swaying back and forth, eyes closed, embracing the surge of sound that has left me entranced.

This is the first single to be released by the native Netherlander Jacco Gardner since 2013, and it is well worth the wait. His influences of sixties psychedelic pop is very prevalent in this new single. With the full album being released on May 5th in North America (May 4th for the rest of the world), ‘Hypnophobia’ will be one of the most influential albums of this summer. Be sure to keep an eye out for Gardner as he begins his tour, starting at LIVE I LIVE FESTIVAL in The Netherlands on April 26th.
