You can drink all the whiskey and cheap wine you want, but Chelsea Cutler knows that won’t dull heartache for long. You’re better off calling a friend and listening to your favorite hopeful melody, which is what Kygo brings to “Not Ok,” his bright and poppy breakup song featuring the popular producer and singer.
Old-school Kygo tricks are back with plenty of synthesized pan flute on top of golden sunset guitar plucks. Cutler’s lyrics tell a story of numb hurt, but Kygo’s production is the silver lining and promise of a better tomorrow.
“Not Ok” follows Kygo’s “Carry On,” his collaboration with Rita Ora for the Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie.
“Not Ok” is out now. Listen to it below.
