Deanna Petcoff – Devastatingly Mediocre [Music Video]

Today the Toronto musician Deanna Petcoff dropped the music video for Devastatingly Mediocre.
The leading and third single is taken from the upcoming debut album
To Hell With You, I Love You which comes out on April 8, 2022 via Royal Mountain Records.
A retro alterna-rock late 90s/early 2000s vibe tune.

About the track:
Written about how dating can be mundane, Deanna shares about the single: “I wrote this song when my friend was dating the most boring guy alive. He really was so normal, met the bare minimum of being a decent person, and yet she was so infatuated with him. At first I wrote this as a joke because I always called him devastatingly mediocre just to tease her, but when I showed it to my band they loved it and we decided to make it something real. I think it actually holds a lot of meaning for a lot of people– it’s so easy to fall in love with someone just because you want to be in love, regardless of whether or not it really works.”

About the video, the directors share, “We wanted to capture the essence of repeating a vicious cycle with dating – how easy and relatable it is to keep dating the same person over and over until you learn whatever lesson you’re supposed to learn. We felt like this song really begged us to lean into the campy early 2000’s Avril Lavigne skater boy visuals, including the use of a handy cam to elevate the timelessness of this type of love interest, especially since we are seeing a comeback of this era. It was fun for us to put Deanna on a pedestal and give her the power in this video.”
