London artist Dea Doyle’s latest single ‘Over You’ narrates leaving a relationship, feeling like you no longer need anyone. The songwriter confides, “I wrote this song at a time in my life where I felt liberated, thinking if I can get over someone I once loved then maybe I’ll never need anyone ever again. At the very end of the song I do flip the idea on its head and question whether I truly am over them, but on a whole it’s about feeling emotionally detached and regaining my independence.”
Beginning with raw snippets of background sounds of children playing, ‘Over You’ features Dea’s impressive, warm honey vocals which glide over a punchy drumline and jangly melodic guitars delivering an overall gritty edge. Channeling 90’s rock/pop artists including Alanis Morrisette and Cheryl Crow, ‘Over You’ emits a similar grungy, angsty sound.
Hoping to encourage listeners to leave toxic relationships that are no longer serving you, Dea wants you to know there’s always better out there. Dea expresses, “On a whole I would like my music to celebrate women in particular and urge them to be unapologetic for who they are and just to have fun really.”
