Sometimes simplicity really is the way to go. In his new video for The End Of August, Dutch multi-instrumentalist, Jacco Gardner, calmly plays the guitar as his figure is double-exposed against images taken from nature. The clip was directed by Gardner himself and has an analog feel that makes it both soothing and melancholic. The autumnal visuals not only match the song’s title, but also its baroque, hazy-dream mood. The End Of August single was released on September 24 via Trouble In Mind. Watch the video (via NPR) and check out Gardner’s upcoming tour dates below, which include a stop at the CMJ Music Marathon.
