Scraps (Cleland)

Los Angeles based pop-punk sensation Deegie has released the first single from her highly anticipated debut EP, EXES. Scraps (Cleland) delivers a suckerpunch your situationship as she recounts a former tumultuous affair and notes the toxic tendencies of past flings.

Written about a summer fling turned, the sour compelling electric guitar, polished percussion, and thunderous vocals on the surface will leave you breathless as Deegie spirals down a rabbit hole of missed red flags.

With Scraps (Cleland), Deegie revisits a situationship that found her longing for more devotion and commitment than she was actually willing to ask Cleland for at the time. The song is what she wishes she would have said when she found out she wasn’t his only summer fling and they finally stopped hooking up. Her heartbreak is countered with anthemic riffs and unabashed lyrics that are irresistibly potent.

The funny thing about this song is how it has pulled me back in time to that summer in the Village; The anxiety of whether he would message me, the euphoria of seeing my phone light up, going out drinking, bringing him home, and the pit in my stomach when someone told me he was seeing another woman even though we weren’t exclusive.



With emotional directness and empowering energy, Deegie’s music has inspired questions like, “What makes you so angry?” There’s something about a woman being raw, bold, and fierce that makes people uncomfortable, and her mission is to shine a klieg light on that truth. With the sound of Olivia Rodrigo’s older sister (or Avril Lavigne’s younger one), Deegie is a pop-punk princess who loves an anthemic melody and a gut-punching lyric.

Her debut EP, EXE, was inspired when she stumbled upon her online journals spanning nearly a decade, which included details about casual and serious relationships that were too good not to indulge in. It’s an exploration of memory, accountability, and the perspective bestowed by time and, in a particularly bold move, each song on the EP will include the name of the boyfriend it’s about in the song’s title.
