Sharing more, Deadbeat Girl said: “The song is about someone that you are with starting to be flakey/sketchy with you. The second you try to leave, all of a sudden you are everything they wanted. So for anyone who can relate, I would love for people to find comfort in it. This song is heavily influenced by the grunge genre overall but more specifically the sound of the neighbourhood. I’m obsessed with their moody, melancholic, edgy vibe and I wanted to emulate it in the song in my own style!”

Everything You Wanted arrives in the wake of a spectacular 2023. The hotly tipped newcomer marked their territory as an exciting artist to watch back in February when they released their debut EP What Will It Take?. The record resonated with many as Deadbeat Girl shared their poignant journey of self acceptance and discovery through their music. They went on to release a handful of stand-out indie-alt moments over the year racking up over 2.3 million streams on Spotify alone.

As well as growing their impressive solo catalog last year, 21-year-old Valentina Olson also treated fans to an outstanding collaboration with the buzzy and brilliant Ari Abdul. Make Me Cry was a dazzling dose of dark alt-pop which came out back in August. In addition to the release, Deadbeat Girl also joined Ari Abdul on her huge world tour, which saw them wow audiences in Paris, Toronto, New York, Berlin, Amsterdam the UK and more.

Born and bred in South Florida, the 21-year-old artist and producer gravitated towards their parents’ record and CD collection from a young age. Falling in love with the grunge movement of the nineties and alternative rock ballads of the early 2000’s. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The Foo Fighters, and Death Cab For Cutie were on constant replay in their childhood home.

Over time, modern day musicians helped shape their sound like Girl In Red, Day Wave, Arlo Parks and Billie Eilish. Alongside finding their feet as a songwriter, they also found a passion for music production, studying the works of Finneas, Tyler The Creator, and Day Wave. All of which became an integral part of Deadbeat Girl’s life soundtrack.

Despite it still being early days for Deadbeat Girl, things are already falling into place and as their adoring fan base continues to grow and relate. There was a time where Olson was unsure if they would ever be able to be their true self, but today they stand as a testament to how much things can change. Striving to be the representation they needed, their music promotes a fearless and defiant message of unconditional acceptance and self-empowerment, making a safe space for anyone who wants to plug in and play Deadbeat Girl

At their core, Deadbeat Girl is “not just a musician, but a lover of music.”
