Do you want to boost your productivity whilst you WFH?

If so, we have launched Silver Sounds – new weekly work from home (WFH) playlists that will help you improve your mood, sharpen your focus and boost your productivity levels.

Many people feel that listening to music whilst working improves their mood, and others claim it even makes them more productive.

I agree with both of those statements, and we are lucky enough to have a kick-ass sound system set up in the studio to listen to on a daily basis… although the music choice can often be questionable.

Not every genre, track or artist is to everyone’s tastes, and there is often a moment when everyone looks at each other thinking, “who put this on?”, “Did I hear that right?”, or “I didn’t realise Jonny liked the Spice Girls”, as you hear him singing to himself whilst putting plans down on paper.

As well as helping to boost morale, creativity and productivity, I personally use it as an opportunity to discover new music. With Shazam by my side, my new music playlist grows daily, often uncovering artists that go on to become new favourites – thank you, everyone!

But what happens when the team (along with the rest of the world) are now WFH and the studio is now your kitchen?

Say hello to Silver Sounds.

I know that finding the perfect playlist isn’t always easy, so the Silver Sounds playlists should help keep you going whilst you WFH, and give you the opportunity to discover new music.

How does it work and who puts the playlists together?

Every member of our team will be compiling a list of their go-to tracks for you all to listen to, and these will be made available every Monday on Spotify.

Guy Berryman

We have also received playlists from some special guests, so keep your eyes peeled for these as they aren’t to be missed. For example, Vol 2 was compiled by Guy Berryman, Coldplay member and Creative Director of The Road Rat Magazine and Ratino Clothing.
