    the mission

From day one, the mission was clear: to create entire worlds by sonically sailing the vessel of your mind through a horizon of the rawest of emotions and the most aesthetically pleasing of beats that spiritually unleash an experience to feel, share, and ultimately create the soundtrack to your memory of this time in your life.

    creating the world

Drawing off recent intense and definitive emotions, spanning mostly over the past few years, the concept behind "Endorphins and Nicotine" has been clear from its inception during a meditation healing session, as ​JRDS set out to delve deeper than just releasing an album. Instead, they set out to build a whole expressive world for the album using emotion, color, connotations, extremities and juxtaposition to traverse the spectrum of a collective experience that comes along with an enticing invitation.

With Passion, Desire, Vulnerability and Anxiety being the most defining emotions describing this time in their life, JRDS then attached those emotions to connotative colors to further build a world for the album, ensuring that every detail means something. 

RED - PASSION & DESIRE 

BLUE - VULNERABILITY & ANXIETY

Two opposite colors, strikingly contrasted, yet perfectly paired, much like their emotive pairings.

The Endorphins and Nicotine artwork was specifically created for the album, representing the extremities of life.

This Artwork was co-designed and edited by Surreal Reality.

"In all of our extremities, and our masks and defenses, we are all a raging fire and we are all the turbulent ocean; we are passion, and we are desire, surrounded by our vulnerabilities and anxiety." - JRDS

    the result

This album celebrates the entirety of our kaleidoscopic, immersive experience as we all race after our ultimate truth, trusting in the importance of sharing,  taking in as much as we can, while we can, wholehearted for a while, but never arriving in one piece. 

Endorphins and Nicotine is best to be experienced with a gently enhanced state of being and a clear, moonlit backdrop. Leave your defenses and masks behind; take the risk and allow the journey of the album to draw you in, bringing with you your most vulnerable of thoughts, and facing them towards your most primal desires.
