Jacko Hooper is meant to be enjoyed live. A musician with a library of influences, he has crafted a niche which is his very own. Touring, travelling and playing in cafés, his songs share the experiences he has. Growing immensely popular because of his lyricism and melodic, flowery sounds-there’s every reason to watch him bloom. This is his latest single, Getting No Place Fast.
You can hear Bon Iver, you can hear Red House Painters. Most importantly, you can hear Jacko Hooper. There is a way of introducing a song, which he does with the little sound bubble burst. As long as you’re part of this gentle explosion, everything seems fine. Warm and inviting, his tones are adjusted and curated to something that plays off his voice. Like a dose of honey and cinnamon, you can hear the lyrics forcing him to change his tone. It is like hearing a poet-someone who loves music as much as the verse. The background woven remains in the picturesque setting, while the vocals are the snow-globe dancers that entertain. It is an incredibly poignant trail within his musical journey, and you’ll be glad to be a part of it.
I’d have loved to have heard this one on Licorice Pizza and Significant Other. The incredibly transitive nature of this track helps to create quite the effect on crucial scenes. The synth leads has a playful undertone, while the sometimes-melancholy vocals by Jacko make it worth the while. His 2014 EP For You is an amazing journey of love and life. Singles like Now Or Never are favourites, so follow him for more beautiful songs!
