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.

Turn The Volume Up And Sing Along To “Shadows” By Camp Crush
Husband-and-wife duo Camp Crush has been active for 5 years in Portland, Oregon. After exploring different genres they found a mutual love for synth-based melodies. Their recent single “Shadows” is a perfect sing-along track you need to hear.
The music video directed by Chris Spicer takes you to a leafy forest, becoming the ideal dreamscape that supports the narrative of “Shadows.” Certainly, letting go of the past and its shadows can be difficult, as the lyrics mention.
Best of all, Jen Deale’s passionate vocals work up the tension to impressive levels thanks to her classical singing skills. At the same time, Chris Spicer’s incredible ear for the instrumentals creates the New Wave atmosphere you’re constantly begging for.
Produced in collaboration with Rian O’Connell Lewis (2x Grammy-nominated), this splendid cut deserves way more attention in my opinion. You can find similar tunes on Electro Wow’s Electro-Pop playlist 2022.
Whether singing or performing, Camp Crush leaves an impression on everyone whose path they cross. Likewise, additional surprises are already in the oven cooking for 2023.

Hot Chip Return With A Music Video Featuring Dancing Robots
Check out the latest robotics-inspired music video from Hot Chip. The cutting-edge visuals for “Broken” show you the boy band of the future comprised of dancing robots fueled by artificial intelligence.
Such a spectacular single is taken from the eighth studio album, ‘Freakout/Release,’ launched four months ago. I swear there are so many good songs that become difficult for me to pick a favorite one.
Somehow, I believe they mix vintage and modern tones to perfection throughout the entire material.
Clearly, these British musicians never tire of innovating by implementing infectious synthesizers and huge singalong choruses. In the case of “Broken,” the emotive lyrics resonate with a feeling of defeat and a call for listeners to have empathy.
