About the Single

“Only You” is the first single from Deirdre’s upcoming debut album, “Heart Work”. A mid-tempo slacker ballad (remember chansons balladées were originally dance songs!), the track combines 90’s college rock/emo (and a hint of power pop) with a contemporary pop production – inspired, perhaps, by the likes of Alex G and Elvis Depressedly, while forging his own path – dealing with the overall theme of post-breakup anxiety. With saturated crispy drums and chorus-y (or heavily distorted!) electric guitars, dynamic melodic basslines, slightly synthetic yet upfront vocals and shimmering acoustic guitars, “Only You” transmits a vibrant and vitalizing energy while emphasizing emotional vulnerability and a strong desire for intimacy. The lyrics seem to convey a sense of longing, insecurity, and a yearning for a genuine connection – feelings of inadequacy, loneliness and isolation – while the music, on the other hand, remains therapeutically hopeful, lush, and bright. “Only You” is a gorgeous and catchy first single from Deirdre.
