Welcome to TV Tunes where YE tells you all about the sweet jams you hear on your favorite shows every week. Hear something you like, but can never figure out the title or artist? We’ve got you covered! Check out our breakdown of the best TV Tunes this week featuring songs from Awkward, Faking It, and Scream Queens.
Awkward: Colleen Green, “Whatever I Want”
As Jenna walks the halls with her pensive face that earned her “Most Depressing,” she ponders whether yearbook superlatives are the crystal ball into the future as her mom and Ally indicated when they rehashed the “Where are they now?” of their high school years. During her introspective musings, “Whatever I Want” from California “stoner rocker” Colleen Green plays, very fittingly. “Whatever I Want” is from Green’s second full-length I Want To Grow Up, an entire album devoted to the conundrums of being a strong-willed introverted woman in a world of demure women with basic tendencies. And we know that Jenna is anything but basic. I bet she and Colleen would get along in real life! The MTV-inspired video for “TV can be seen above!
Faking It: Tei Shi, “Bassically”
The BIG moment from this week’s Faking It was when Seetah took advantage of Karma’s absence to confess her feelings for Liam and give him a kiss that would leave him with a lot to think about. During this crazy kiss we hear “Bassically” from Tei Shi, an indie pop multi-talent originally from Argentina but now set up shop in Brooklyn. Her sound crosses and defies genres, and her lyrical aesthetic is witty and playful. Her new EP is called Verde and it’s out now!
Scream Queens: Glass Candy, “Warm In The Winter”
We first meet Kappa crazy Chanel Oberlin in the premiere episode of Scream Queens to the sweet notes of Glass Candy’s “Warm In The Winter,” a poppy yet enigmatic dance jam from the side project of Johnny Jewel of The Chromatics and vocalist Ida No. If you’re not familiar with Glass Candy or The Chromatics, now is your chance. Both acts are dreamy, sweet, gauzy, but also noisy and messy. “Warm In The Winter” is probably the more accessible track from the group’s EP of the same name. If you liked that, check out “Kill For Love” from The Chromatics.
