Therapies Son is the project of Alex Jacob, a 19-year-old from Los Angeles with some shimmery guitar lines and hushed, tender vocals. In the video for “Touching Down,” he matches that together with disturbing and pretty shots from the films Altered States, HEAD and 2001: A Space Odyssey. He’s yet to release an actual record, but with songs like this — equal parts psych-pop, British Invasion and chillwave — Therapies Son is going to have a firm place in my iTunes rotation. Don’t be surprised if this guy becomes a blog star by summertime.
The Over the Sea EP will be out March 22 on Transparent.
