Friday the 13. A perfect day for heartache. Elin Skei and I have collaborated to create Unhappy Valentines. This 5-track EP is the boy meets girl love story without the fairy tale ending. It starts off as all fun and games on “Better Than That” where Elin isn’t exactly feeling the boyish pickup lines. Then I get a little personal on tracks like “She Loves Me Not”, “Want Me Back,” and “The Worst.” Elin explodes on “Faded” as she reminisces on a love lost.
