A couple of days ago this tasty track appeared in my Inbox and OMG this is literally amazing. Signed to Warner Music, Norway the twosome known at Skinny Days compromise of Dag Holtan-Hartwig and Halvor Folstad. Way back in 2010 they actually met in Liverpool by chance, the pair then became prolific songwriters, musicians and producers. They have worked with the likes of Julie Bergan, Isac Elliot, Ina Wroldsen, Ylvis, Madden, Astrid S and more. Their releases have clocked up over 120 MILLION Spotify streams between them.
Now Skinny Days were born in 2015 and the duo have released a string of impressive singles over the course of two years, which have seen them amass over 11 MILLION streams of their own on Spotify.
The One That Got Away features Emilie Adams’s gorgeous vocals. This sumptuous song is a Summer smash, I can pick up on a tropical flavour and it’s smothered in plenty of electronic beats. Now this cut is the perfect piece of Scandi Pop and Adams’s luscious fresh and funky vocal tones remind me of Danish singer Karen Marie Ørsted or MØ as she’s also known as.
Regarding the song and working with Emilie, Skinny Days say, “’The One That Got Away’ is a song that mixes melancholy and feel-good in an interesting way. It’s kind of like going to a party with a broken heart and then finding the love of your life at 2:30am. Emilie Adams has a beautiful velvety voice and we had to get her on a Skinny Days song after working with her on TRXD’s major hit ‘Our City’.”
