“I Don't Like You”, with its explicit title, is a (provokingly) catchy pop-tune from Elise Vatsvaag within the genre of indiepop/electronica. For the first time ever, Vatsvaag has worked with producer and fellow band member Simen Ytre-Arne, and together they have created a vibrant soundscape with tasteful references. The song is loaded with subtle hooks, and while “I Don't Like You” proves to to be the most upbeat single from Vatsvaag so far, it still strikes a melancholic tone – a seemingly familiar feature in Vatsvaag's music.
Norwegian artist Elise Vatsvaag has created her own original and captivating sound while rubbing sonic shoulders with the likes of Swedish heroines such as Lykke Li, Veronica Maggio and Robyn. Elise’s collection of songs «This Is Not My Music» was released throughout 2012, and offered a glimpse of this young singer-songwriter’s burgeoning talents. The freshly baked 2013-single «I Don't Like You» proves that Vatsvaag has barely just begun.

NORWEGIAN: “I Don't Like You”, med sin eksplisitte tittel, er en fengende poplåt fra Elise Vatsvaag med tydelige røtter i indiepop/elektronika-sjangeren. Vatsvaag har for første gang samarbeidet med produsent og bandmedlem Simen Ytre-Arne. Sammen har de skapt et rikt og spennende lydbilde med smakfulle referanser. Låten inneholder flere hooks, og er definitivt den mest dansbare låten fra Vatsvaag så langt. Likevel har Vatsvaag beholdt det som tilsynelatende begynner å ligne på et varemerke/kjennetegn – nemlig snevet av melankoli og sårbarhet.
