While at school Déyyess was scouted to play for Arsenal Girls but she turned down the opportunity to concentrate on music.
Her music details real life relationships and experiences with a tilted pop sensibility that sits somewhere between the narratives of King Princess and the imagination of Kate Bush. “When I’m in something, I’m all in. My last relationship was the same. She was the first girl I ever loved, and she knew that. I think that’s probably why she broke up with me. Most of my songs are about her. I’m literally just over it, but if I didn’t have that heartbreak, I don’t think I’d be here. I’m so glad that happened to me.”
