Khalid – ‘American Teen’

Khalid has just released his debut album, American Teens. The title-track from the album is also his most recent single and its got a very 80s movie feel to it with its twinkling, phasing space-like synths.

His voice is sorrowful and soulful at the same time – this track is not your standout pop track but is subtle in its approach. It’s a great song taken from a fantastic debut album. This looks set to be the start of a beautiful career.

Watch the music video below too – artistic and film-like in its own way.


‘American Teen’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/american-teen/id1200868601?i=1200868616



Alessia Cara – ‘How Far I’ll Go’

Taken from Disney’s MoanaAlessia Cara‘s version of ‘How Far I’ll Go’  is a superb take on the song from the film. It’s not like the old R&B versions they so often used to roll over the credits of 90s Disney films – it’s very current with a tropical house vibe to it.

The song is great and still performing well on the Spotify charts, and whilst I thoroughly love the tune, it’s got a slightly disjointed feel to it as it appears to speed up and slow down. Nevertheless a great song, it is!

‘How Far I’ll Go’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/how-far-ill-go-alessia-cara-version/id1169181309?i=1169182769
