Oshua is taking the feeling of bedroom boredom and turning it into something that you can easily chill out to with his single ‘Monke’. Sampling a popular melody from Avatar: The Last Airbender, he uses waves of airy undertones to create a summery vibe that you can chill to.

These elements combine for a relatable track wrapped in a dreamy mood. An experiment of sounds, the single is a wonderful step into lo-fi for anyone looking to drift for a little while.
