Jovan Sr., aka “Nightmare”, and Jovan Jr., aka “Sleepy”, compliment each other’s interests in sound to arrive at a sonic character wholly their own. Mixing genres in indie, cloud hop, and more, the project creates well-crafted jams that can sit alongside some of the most notable hip-hop tunes of our time.
This catchy song is easy to follow with an upbeat tempo that’s sure to make you sway whenever we can finally do that safely in person. This kind of sound can find its way into the playlists of disparate youth seeking meaning in the meaningless nature of life or just your average human seeking connectivity in the grander scheme—the universe.
The song lyrics seem conversational, as if the main singers are speaking to themselves and reflecting on their experiences with substance use, escapism, or rather reacquaintance with spirituality.
In some ways, through experiences like dropping acid and turning up we can learn to let go and remember the inner fibers that unite us and remind us we are in fact here, still.

Anjali Rose Kumar is a musician, videographer, and creative freak based in Brooklyn, NYC. Anjali is learning to cope with a self-imposed quarantine in NYC’s second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic by spending her hours recording music in her bedroom, watching her unemployment leave her bank account, and embarking on a newly revived love of writing. In fact, when Anjali was 10 years old she was convinced she would live her life as a writer, however, she would often confuse her teachers by making up her own vocabulary and therefore buried the interest for 15 years. Cheers to the new years ahead of us. You can find out more about Anjali here.
