Revision Soundtrack #4 – ‘Glass’ by Round

Just another blissfully chilled, background track to your studying. A really beautiful tune in itself: it’s been a favourite of mine to listen to whilst just reading or relaxing in the evening since it was released about 3 years ago, and has developed into an exam season staple as well.


Revision Soundtrack #3 – R√∂yksopp

My ultimate go-to music for studying for years. Their debut album ‘Melody AM’ may now be 16 years old, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less sensational or inspiring. Wonderful music not just for revision, but for life also – you can never tire of this Norwegian duo’s warm, spacey, downbeat electronica.

Revision Soundtrack #2 – Believe by Airhead

Next up in our special revision features comes a song that is encouraging right from it’s name. The downtempo electronic beats are joined by only one lyric – “you got to believe in something” – and this simplistic combination makes for a song that is really quite motivating to work to. A rare track that will lift your mood without distracting you from revision.

Revision Soundtrack #1 – ODESZA

ODESZA’s entire catalogue is the absolute ideal music to revise to. Their dreamy electro-pop strikes a clean balance of being interesting and motivating without being too distracting: most of their songs are purely instrumental, meaning there’s no chance of accidentally singing along for an entire album or so without getting any work done. ‘How Did I Get Here’, ‘Koto’ and ‘Bloom’ are ones we particularly recommend, but really, you could put either of their albums on and get a good amount of revision done.
