James Hawken

James Hawken’s (@hawken309) music combined with noise-cancelling headphones makes crossing a busy street a ballet on water. Ivory keys remove chaos replacing it with a fountain of tranquility. You start feeling recharged as the piano sounds morph into synths that question the imbalance of the human psyche in modern times.

Recommended songs: Dream Away; 4 Musical Notes; Pause for Thought; Hold on!

Monsters Who Sleep

Monsters Who Sleep (@monsterswhosleep) takes you to a dimly lit room and makes you befriend shadows on the walls pasted with pictures of people you once knew and places you’ve been to. The light from the crescent Moon outside seems to remind you that time heals all wounds and everything will be alright.

Recommended songs: If Someone Was Ever There, Not Anymore; You Know Who You Are; Gravity; I Don’t Care; Ravens; Jane Doe
