Featuring vocals from 17-year-old Norwegian pop sensation Emma Steinbakken, “WOW” captures Matoma’s ‘feel-good’ sound with its upbeat and euphoric vibe. This new track arrives after Matoma recently released his critically-acclaimed EP, RYTME. RYTME saw Matoma work with an array of top vocal talent, including acclaimed singer-songwriter Brando, Georgia Ku, Bryn Christopher, Griff Clawson, Anna Clendening, and fellow Norwegian artist Alida.
“‘WOW’ is the only way to really describe your feelings when you’re blown away by something and that’s how I felt when I heard the incredible voice of rising star Emma Stienbakken! This song is about that precise feeling…for some, it can be a feeling you get from a person you meet, from others you can feel this impact from a beautiful sunset, a mountain view, or a song. We hope this song gives you that feeling!”– Matoma
“Working on ‘WOW’ with Matoma has been super inspiring. I love the song and the music video and it’s been an incredibly fun journey to be a part of.”– Emma Steinbakken
