CURRENT: Fascinator – “Time To Go”

Fascinator is the moniker New York-based Johnny Mackay records under, his music grounded in deep grooves while his melodies attempt to rise above. There’s a reason Tame Impala re-posted it to their SoundCloud, as the two acts share similar musical vocabularies. “Time To Go” is the third song released from Fascinator’s debut LP Man (out January 29 via Spinning Top), and its his heftiest by far. From the organ that opens the track to the choral flourishes midway, Mackay expertly creates an entire world for this song to live. That bass line is as elemental to the song as it is on any track from Currents or Lonerism, tugging the listener further in to the environment. “Leave it all behind,” he authoritatively sings during different points throughout the song. It’s time to move on to bigger things.
