We all know those sleepless nights when you have too much on your mind and sitting in silence only intensifies tangents of thought. The influence of music can sometimes be underestimated, it’s a temporary escape and can alter any mood. If you find yourself lying awake in the middle of the night, the hypnotizing voices of Banks and Ryn Weaver will help you clear your mind.

It’s important to keep that essential balance between the highs and lows of our days, one way of maintaining that equilibrium is music. Sometimes a song can be so addicting it’s hypnotizing. Banks voice can easily get trapped in your head and the lyrics of Asaf can be a constant reminder to live our days to the fullest. If you ever need a few minutes to regain that balance or just a moment of peace, follow Pura Vida on soundcloud for more mesmerizing sounds.
