What’s this? The debut single from 16 year old Swedish artist Tilda Austen. ‘One Thing’.
What does Tilda say? “One Thing is an angry love song about how tiring it is to patiently wait for a person to love you back. The song is about longing for someone to take initiative and show real emotions instead of leading you on for the wrong reasons. That nagging feeling of being capable to do almost everything for a person but deep down in your mind, it is clear that he or she doesn’t feel the same way. The frustration is noticeable lyric-wise, while the melodies are filled with energy, turning One Thing into a strong, powerful but happy song.“
What does Scandipop say? This is how we imagine it would sound if NEIKED were to write and produce a song for JoJo. It is an absolute bop, of sizable proportions. And super-catchy, to boot.
Written by? Harry Sommerdahl, Ronny Vidar Svendsen, and Anne Judith Wik.
More from Tilda? There shall be three more singles this summer, apparently. Tilda was offered a record deal at the age of 12 (that voice you’re about to hear will explain why), and has spent the last four years honing her craft and finding the right songs. She’s ready.
