“A recent report into Gen Z and millennials by Spotify found that 56 percent believe that audio can serve as a distraction from too much visual stimulation” Close your eyes. Go on. Just for a minute. Now listen. It’s extraordinary what you notice when you’re deprived of your primary sense. With the nature of our environment being overwhelmingly visual, it’s all too easy to overlook the aural elements of a brand and business. But what’s becoming more evident to us is a need to shift our focus from eyeballs to ears.
