Review: "She Loves Me" - Deadbeat Girl

"She loves me" by Deadbeat Girl is a song that will pull on your heartstrings. This track's soft and wistful tones absolutely pulled me in; it’s lovely. With a soft voice that I equate to Billie Eilish's, Deadbeat Girl’s sound will captivate any listener. The songwriting is beautifully done and the song feels soft, sweet, and naive. This is a song I would genuinely listen to and add to any of my sad song playlists. I recommend this song to any queer woman who is irrevocably in love with someone who feels like a ghost.

Sonically, I feel this track reminds me of Billie Eilish and Indie artist Clairo. The melodic strumming of the guitar will have you swaying lightly while you listen to this heart-wrenching song. "She Loves Me" tells a story about unrequited love. No matter how many times this person lets you down, uses you, and tears you down... They are still sitting up on the pedestal in your mind. You would do anything for this person. Give your body, your love, and your time, but you are nothing more than a stepping stone in their life. When you look them in the eyes, all you see is yourself staring back at you.

Deadbeat Girl, or Val Olson, is an up-and-coming indie-pop artist. The young singer is nineteen and based in New York City but is originally from south Flordia. Val claims that they want others to feel seen and heard when they listen to her music. They unreservedly write about feelings that others are too afraid to write so openly about, and they do it in a unique and charming way.
