Jacko Hooper’s music is a beautiful extension of himself. With personal lyricism, soulful vocals, and affecting melodies, the artist serves up beautiful tracks that make you feel close to yourself. The Brighton-based singer-songwriter and artist specializes in alt-pop with incredibly dreamy folk sensibilities. In his new single, Getting No Place Fast, Jacko Hooper dilates the fabric of love and heartbreak.
Getting No Place Fast tells a parallel story of love and heartbreak. The artist strings them together with nostalgic acoustics and lush synths, peppered of course with his luminous vocals. As the synths scatter with the magic and romance of love, the vocals anchor them to the heartbreak timeline lined with acoustics. The flow of thoughts in the lyrics is not linear. And with spooky harmonies, he showcases the liberation from pain, as he decides to move on from what was.
This track is the first single from his debut album, Respair via Folklore Records. Hooper released, For You, his debut EP in 2014. Since then, he has released eight singles and two EPs. His sound edges the line between smooth bedroom pop and folk styles. He has recorded and performed on tour with legends like James Blunt, James Bay, Oktoba, Freya Ridings, Russian Red, etc. Having garnered a compositional sophistication over the years, his excellence sparkles out of his work.
