Ontario-based artist Jacob Barber presents a nostalgic, psychedelic journey on “We’re One With The Stars,” the title track from his upcoming album. Per Barber, the effort takes inspiration from “the apparent inner-connectivity of all things: the inner and outer oneness of the planet, people, across time and space.”
A ’60s-inspired psychedelic character is apparent, particularly as the playful organs infuse alongside the debonair bass line and hazy guitar pulses. Barber’s dazed vocals follow delectably, into a twangy guitar envelopment and a soaring “stars in the sky,” contemplation. Boasting ample melodic and stylistic charm, “We’re One With The Stars” has us firmly anticipating the upcoming album. Also be sure to check out the single’s trippy music video, above, animated by John Andrews.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.
