Deza has been cultivating a niche called “poetic pop,” and recently has launched the newest era of her evolution. With “Boy Violet” and “Does Everybody Hate Me?” she has catapulted into the chapter she calls “MAXIMALISM.” Now, Deza comes with her 3rd single in 2020 to give light and joy through her plunky, anthemic gem called “End Of The World.”
The whole track brings a lightness to a situation so heavy, it’s paradoxical. From humorous, bittersweet lines like “but at least I won’t need fillers // cause yeah I’ll be young forever // cause yeah my forever is for now” is juxtaposed against the overarching warmth of the concept of sharing the end of it all with someone you love.
Speaking about the track, Deza shares, “From the initial idea to the final lyric, this track took only about 5 hours to write. It was me and my two closest collaborators. We’d bought a cake we called the “end of the world cake” to eat while we processed the strangeness that this pandemic has stirred within us. In our minds, there was nothing else to write about – and the only way we could write about it and not lose our shit was to make it playful; fun; lovely. I think it creates such a beautiful space to process that bittersweet feeling of losing everything, but being in love while you do it.”
