Often the world we live in feels overwhelming; a tide in which we are swept up, lapping the shore of politics and searing pain – falling to apathy, confined to our lethargy. With the constant saturation of media turning; glitching as rusted clogs and sparking, we find ourselves in states of anxiety that make it difficult to sleep at night. It’s like a perpetual burnout, as soon as we have a moment of rest, it feels as though that embrace of regeneration can be stolen within the second. However, the importance of allowing ourselves those moments to reflect; to really take a deep breath, regain our energy within the daily stressors of life so we have a clear mind in which to navigate.
To assist in those moments of calm and reflection we all so desperately need, we’ve compiled a list of enchanting ambient tracks; with hints of wave and post-rock among them.
