Revision Season 2016

Revision Season 2016

Unfortunately, revision season has struck us again. As I’m sure you know, having some decent music can make this whole studying thing less painful – putting together a whole playlist of it is also an excellent way to procrastinate whilst still feeling productive. Here at Circulation, we’ve done the work for you and have put together a Spotify playlist of our top tunes for revising to – a mix of calming and motivating songs for your enjoyment, ranging from the likes of The Lumineers and Birdy to Run the Jewels and Pixies.
