The Best New Music to end your STUVAC

The Best New Music to end your STUVAC

WORDS BY NICOLE BAXTER

Exam periods can be stressful, and music is the best therapy. Some of us prefer to listen to it whilst studying (and somehow still retain information) whilst others use it as a study break. Music is a great way to disconnect and switch your brain off for a while, which is very important for all of us to do. I’ve noticed over the years that exam periods can become very stagnated when it comes to music – with no time to search for good new music, you listen to the same songs over and over again and become frustrated. Well, worry not! Here’s a compilation of some of the best new music releases so you don’t have to find them.
