As the new semester begins, it is important to develop well-rounded study habits to maintain a good work ethic when it comes to any kind of deadlines you are facing. Studying and focusing can be difficult with a lot of background noise and distractions that you can face in a public place or even your home.

Even though some people cannot study with music playing, there are a handful of artists that might challenge that argument.

I’ve ruled out some genres that can disturb your focus more than others, but after years of paying attention to certain music that works better than others, I’ve found a variety of genres like Alternative, Psych/Alternative, ShoeGaze, Electronic, and Pop.

I have to mention one of my favorite pop artists: The Japanese House. The Japanese House has been a long-time gem in my playlists because their sound is genuine, with a humble electronic/pop genre that reinvents what the genre of pop has been thought out to be.

Their track “Saw You In A Dream” will pull you in with the catchy guitar strums and allow you to settle into a comforting mindset. An old gem is “Clean,” which is a great spot to gain a better idea of The Japanese House from their roots. This electronic/pop track is magnificent with several nuances that turn the tune into a well-rounded serene song, and it is perfect for centering in on what you are working on.

MUNYA is the latest discovery for me and I have not been disappointed with any of their music. Some of their songs are sung in French and some English which adds more to their alternative/pop sound.

Dove is a number that is appealing and soothing with subtle French vocals, synthy guitar, and steady drum beats. “All About You is gorgeous with a hint of folky guitar strums, heavy bass and tight drum beats. MUNYA’s simple and gentle vocals bring the entirety of their sound together which pairs well with a listener who is looking for a stress-free work process.

Lastly, I will mention Hether, which is an artist that I keep coming back to again for peaceful interaction. Hether’s vocals are nothing extravagant but they provide a relaxed home base when it comes to all their songs. 

Twinkle has gentle guitar riffs with many other soothing musical overtones from every angle, while “When U Loved Mesends a more distorted sound to every aspect of the song but will still leave you undisturbed.

These artists do not overcomplicate their sound, but they certainly do not leave out any details in their delivery of peaceful music. I recommend you add a couple of these songs to any playlist where you need to be settled and not anxious.  Whether it is your studies, work, or just a moment of serenity these tracks have you covered.
