Now that The Girl and the Dreamcatcher's EP Negatives has officially dropped, you've likely found a track or two that you'd boldly declare your favorite, and maybe even another that just hits home for you. TWIST hung out with Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan after their performance at the QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning over the weekend, and we asked them to share a song that means the most to them as a couple – even if it's not one of their TDATDC tracks.
"You're going to be shocked about this, but we did a single that was sort of by fan request called 'Someone You Like', that wasn’t nearly as big as any of our other songs," Ryan shares exclusively with us. "But we recorded it and released it because we did a video of it on YouTube and people wanted to be able to have the MP3. It’s really nothing like The Girl and the Dreamcatcher’s typical sound. And we didn’t do a music video or anything like that."
"But the story and the lyrics are just so tried and true to like, I don’t know, the innocence and the nostalgia, for like who we are and what we stand for, for each other," he adds. "There’s something so sweet about it."
Ryan made our hearts flutter with his response, but Dove caught us off guard with the song she finds most meaningful in the pair's relationship.
"Umm, yeah, 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,'" Dove says, dropping a Taylor Swift reference.
"I’m sorry, I’m sorry!" she quickly adds, clearly joking. "Sometimes my comedy thing turns on and I can’t turn it off. I guess, hearing that argument, I’m not just saying this, 'Make You Stay'."
"It's very declarative, you know, 'I'd sing acapella in the rain.' That was the point with those lyrics, like what else would you do for each other? Those lyrics are just really honest." she shares. "One of my favorite lyrics in there that we’ve ever written is, 'When I’m crazy and I don’t know why, would you calm me down and read my mind?' because that’s such a girl thing, it’s like, 'I don’t know what it is. Fix it and I’m not going to tell you how.'
"I mean, screw that, man. That’s gender roles," Ryan counters. "That’s a human thing, we all go crazy and we need someone to pull us down. And we do that."
