Jacco Gardner – “Find Yourself” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Jacco Gardner is on a mission of self-discovery, and the Dutch producer/multi-instrumentalist finds more than he bargained for in the video for his latest track “Find Yourself.” In the Bear Damen-directed clip — which is one half rainbow-paint-splatter acid trip and one half doomsday ’70s roadtrip to nowhere — the hero in question smokes a joint while driving in a heavily forested area and then has a harrowing, drug-addled encounter… with himself. Channeling Ariel Pink’s destroyed pop sonics, Gardner’s existential crisis includes just enough theatrics to keep you guessing. And those cars ain’t too shabby either. Watch it below and check out Gardner’s tour dates.
