DellaXOZ is back with her first single of 2022, ‘I Want Doesn’t Get’, her richest and most satisfying pop experiment yet.

The title is something DellaXOZ’s mum would say as a jokey response whenever she said she wanted something, she explains, adding: “After having a long creative block during the pandemic, it randomly inspired me to create a song where I basically just complain about things in my life, while simultaneously accepting them”.

“It’s about this weird ‘half-relationship-half-vibes’ kind of situation I had that came abruptly to an end on the day lockdown was announced”, she goes on. “For the first few months I didn’t really try to process it, so this song for me was kind of a therapeutic vent of all the irrational and paradoxical emotions we’ve all experienced – like bitterness and resentment but contrastingly acceptance and even indifference.

“It sounds pessimistic”, she concludes, “but I came to the understanding that these things are inevitable and it’s best to accept them – or at least be indifferent to them”.
