Christina Perri – Burning Gold // The Fosters, Season 2 Episode 7
Christina Perri has a singular voice which suits the scene where Mariana practices various forms of dance. You might know Christina Perri from her massive hit ‘Thousand Years’ which was on the soundtrack for Twilight: Breaking Dawn part 1 (Bella and Edward getting married … bawl!) and went quadruple platinum. This track is pulled from her second studio album, Head or Heart, released in April.
The Night Terrors of 1927 – Dust and Bones // Pretty Little Liars, Season 5 Episode 8
This song is playing in The Brew as Hanna and Zack flirty flirt whilst he serves her a sandwich (hot, right?). The Night Terrors have a pretty standard indie pop sound, and they cite Lana Del Rey and The Weekend as influences, but we are giving them additional props for their awesome band name; apparently it came about from one of them finding the phrase written down in his grandfather’s old journal. Cree-py! If you happen to live in Texas, catch them at Austin City Limits later this year. Here’s the track:
Lou Bega – Mambo no. 5 // Degrassi, Season 13 Episode 39
Imogen cranks this song up so that she, Drew, Dallas and Connor can dance for Becky, who is still upset over the trial. This is such a timeless party song that it’s hard to believe that it was actually first released fifteen years ago! Lou Bega called back the original track from a Cuban track written in 1949, but threw his own something to the mix. Sadly for Lou, this was his biggest hit, although on second thoughts it hit number one in thirteen countries so maybe not such a tragedy. Take a trip down memory lane below:
Hayden Calnin – Coward // Teen Wolf Season 2 Episode 6
This track is playing as Scott and Stiles embark upon the gruesome money counting scene. I don’t know about you, but this song had me unsettled from the very first bars. Hayden Calnin is a 23 year old from Melbourne, Australia, who has already garnered praise for his debut EP, City. He’s currently not set to play any dates stateside, but watch this space! In the meantime, take a listen:
Walking Def – Everything // Degrassi, Season 13 Episode 39
This is the song playing at the school dance as Ali and Dallas question Drew about his feelings for Becky. The song definitely has a high energy, trilling sound and heavy beat that make it an obvious fit for the party scene. Walking Def is an LA based collaboration founded in 2012 and the guys have also had their music featured on GoPro’s 2013 Superbowl commercial and CW show Arrow. They are set for big things in the electronica space in 2014.
