18 yr old Khalid was featured on pigeonsandplanes.com on their Daily Discovery feed. He describes his own music as mood music, but he doesn’t like to stick to a genre. Of all the tracks he released so far, this one hits the gold for me. American Teen has this really great intro especially when the instrumentals start going around 5 seconds of the tune. Took me just one listen to get addicted to this track with its good vibes. Just like the last track I featured “Noah Kahan’s Young Blood”, Khalid’s lyrics also feature personal experiences in his youth. Cheers to this guy making it big with this track!
Ever since that viral video when Pharrell met her at the NYU studio because of their professor’s idea, she goes on to impress us still to this day. Releasing “Alaska” as an official single afterwards, it instantly hit the radios and playlists. Dog Years I’d say was a track I got right away. The mellow vibes and lyrics bring you close to her. With this new song however, she takes us to yet another different sound without sacrificing her songwriting showing us that she’s definitely deserving of that BBC Sound of 2017 nomination. When is she gonna release an album?
The last track I posted about Kevin Garrett featured his single “Control”. Still having his mellow r&b sound combined with electronic beats, Refuse doesn’t fail to impress. The lyric of the song just like his tracks such as “Coloring” and “Come Up Short” is gonna give you chills.
“Is it the look in your eyes,
Or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you.”
“I swear I’ve got three lives
Balanced on my head like steak knives
I can’t tell you the truth about my disguise
I can’t trust no one”
She told me “Don’t worry about it”
She told me “Don’t worry no more”.
