From Brian Eno to Mac DeMarco: The ambient and relaxing music playlist to keep you calm during lockdown

During this period of uncertainty, a time in our lives that arrives as an unprecedented period of a global health crisis, we all need to find a momentary period of relief.

The current pandemic has wreaked havoc to the economy, to our social lives, to the family who have been fatally wrapped up in the rising death tolls. While headlines continue to deliver the negative news with almost unrelenting pace, it is easy to become bogged down in the dire situation.

With many mental health charities struggling to cope with the extra demand, anxiety levels are stretching to new heights and a period of prolongued lockdown amid strict social distancing measures can start to take its toll.

Here, we are presenting a four-hour playlist of music to allow your mind to relax.

With the likes of Brian Eno, Yo La Tengo, David Bowie, Mac DeMarco and more, the playlist arrives with equal measures of ambient sounds as well as tracks to maintain slightly more intrigue.

“Ambient music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting,” Eno once said and that is exactly what this playlist hopes to achieve.

Take some time, relax, let your mind wander.
