Starting off with an awesome instrumental that has layers overlapping each other and eventually creating the instrumental track for the first verse, "Skin" is a funky indie pop/dance-pop fusion track by the now inactive Icelandic octet Retro Stefson. It has those 2000's synthpop vibes that instantly make you think of Hurts' "Beautiful Life", or some of Duran Duran's newer tracks. It offers a happy-go-lucky feeling to the listener and makes you bounce in your seat and bop your head, all in a very sincere way. It's not a track that forces you to connect with it, but rather makes you enjoy its simplicity. The refrain could get stuck in your head hours after the first listen. We recommend hearing this song when you need to turn a frown upside down! (Or if you're alone on Valentine's Day and need to cheer up).
