Toronto based singer-songwriter Deanna Petcoff has this week shared her latest single, I Don’t Wanna Get Over You, following on from the release of July’s Failing Upwards. Accompanying the release, Deanna has also shared the music video for the track.

I Don’t Wanna Get Over You is an ode to moving on, despite not wanting to – reflecting on and accepting that sometimes our heart moves on before our mind is really ready to. 


Speaking about the single, Deanna states:

I wrote this song with my good friend Jacob Switzer over zoom somewhere during the second lockdown. We wanted to write something to stay connected to each other during a time of extreme loneliness, so we decided to take this small idea I had and turn it into this sad, Strokes-y tune. We’d both been listening to a lot of The Magnetic Fields, and really valued how honest and brutal their writing can be. We wanted to say something that hurt a little bit, was a little bit embarrassing, and ultimately the most honest we could be.

Newly signed to Royal Mountain Records, the home of Pillow Queens, Alvvays and Orville Peck, Deanna Petcoff writes about the frustration in her experiences as a young woman, finding her voice and identity whilst navigating a city that always changes, where an ex could be hiding around any corner.

More material from Deanna Petcoff is expected in 2022, and if this year’s releases are anything to go by, it looks to be an exciting year.
