Toronto rapper/producer Junia-T’s video for “The Day” takes a well-shot look at the daily routine of a man balancing creative dreams, romance, fatherhood, and the vices that can make focusing on any of those things difficult. It’s brief and loose, an associative series of images that gives the impression of a life rather than a strict straight-line narrative. A fitting accompaniment to Junia’s energetic, workmanlike single about the tight-rope walk between the lofty goals of an artist and the humbling realities of the everyday.
