Skinny love is written by Justin Vernon, he is the guitarist and main man of the Indie folk bandBon Iver from Wisconsin. The song was featured in the beginning episode of the fifth season of Grey's Anatomy. That could not prevent the number almost nowhere became a hit.
In 2011 BirdySkinny love brought out as single. Soon there were in England for over 250,000 downloads sold. Netherlands and Belgium followed in terms of time on distance. But here it reached number though a higher place in the charts.
