New York-based collective Monotronic illustrates the hallucinogenic effects of Ayahuasca in their visuals for “Just Another Day.“ It is no wonder, then, why video director John Fitzpatrick makes everything look kinda super trippy at the laundromat. Actually, this brilliant tune was written after an Ayahuasca retreat in Peru. Moreover, bandleader Ramsey Elkholy kept the lyrics on his phone for nearly two years. Today he remembers the whole experience as intense as heavy and manages to reflect on it through this particular composition.
On the other hand, this is not a simple song, this is art. Monotronic wrap you up in a melody where punchy drums, energetic percussion, and electronic synths produce nothing but pure adrenaline. In addition, it features some deep lines on life and death, which invites you to understand better yourself. Undoubtedly, music and Ayahuasca have one more thing in common, both can reduce depressive symptoms and anxiety. Just take in mind, it’s never late to keep trying new things and getting out of ruts.
