Term is starting up again for most universities, so give your pre-drinks playlist a necessary revamp with this week's brand new tunes. The Easter holidays have come to an end and exam season is on the horizon, that means you have a few more weeks to squeeze in some night's out before the revision begins, and both your pre-drinks and revision playlists need updating. Here is a list of ten new tracks: some of which will get you pumped, while others can calm those exam nerves. 5 Seconds of Summer - Youngblood This punchy single is the title track from 5SOS's upcoming third album, and showcases the boys' growth as it is different from what we've heard before. They are moving away from the safety of their boy band bubble, and finally breaking into the pop punk genre they have always yearned after. All of their efforts have paid off with this track though, and drummer Ashton Irwin, described the single as having "romanticism and anger, but also enery and colour." The Australian lads are certainly bursting back into the music scene with a bang. The Lovely Eggs - Big Sea The Lovely Eggs are breaking genre boundaries with their new single 'Big Sea'. Merging their punk rock style with an eletronic layer, this unique sound is reminiscent of 60s psychedelia. Nonetheless the lyrics explore deep topics such as existentialism, which simply takes this single a whole other level. Scott Matthews - CINNAMON Singer-songwriter Scott Matthews is releasing his sixth studio album this summer, and this single from it is spine tingling. The production is evidence of his expertise, while his voice is saturated with so much emotion that it conveys a clear autheticity and genuine rawness to his work. If you like this, then you should catch him on his tour, which starts on the 28th April. Jenny Hval - Spells 'Spells' opens with a full, orchestral sound, which continues to build throughout the opening, giving you time to completely lose yourself within the wonder of the music. There is no rush for the vocals to begin, and instead, you savour every brass contribution until the jazz atmosphere masterly blends into the more pop-style percussion, and finally, into Jenny Hval's voice. Every aspect of this single has been thought out and crafted to create the hypnotising masterpiece that it is. Indridi - Amma
