Khalid – American Teen

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!


Jacob Banks – Monster ft. Avelino

I first heard of Jacob Banks when Sigma released his house track “Redemption”. Instantly got addicted to the lyrics and tune. Jacob follows Sigma’s collabs with Labrinth and Ella Henderson which is a good sign imo.

“Quantico” episode 2 had a scene that played this song. Shazamed it right away! The tv show just started but proving to have a good soundtrack that includes Cold War Kids, Mikky Ekko, etc.

Suits Season 5 – Faith


The midseason finale of the tv show Suits premiered last week. The episode was entitled “Faith”. Personally, I┬áconsider this one of the best episodes this season. We will soon find out in which directions our characters are heading to. The music featured were also great which is no surprise looking at the past seasons’ soundtrack.

Leon Bridges’ blues used for the intro (check out “Coming Home”)

The last scene’s intensity captured with this indie track.
