President Street, Australia’s dynamic pop-fusion duo, is thrilled to announce the release of their euphoric dance-pop single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ – a track that’s an up-tempo explosion of joy and energy led by sentiments of fantasy and a desire to escape the reality that’ll get you dancing and feeling free. Filled with a sense of wonder, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ explores themes of embracing love and personal power to expand beyond your comfort zone and step into a bright, fantastical world of your creation.

Hot on the heels of their triumphant Australian 2023 debut releases with dance-pop cover ‘She Drives Me Crazy’ and follow-up pop-ballad ‘Something to Believe’ that saw the duo receive radio playlisting at national networks iHeartRadio, ARN (KIIS FM), and ACE to name just a few, President Street is back with ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’.

Built around its infectious pulsating synth, deep bass grooves, funky guitar riffs, and hook-laden melodies with carefree, yet compelling lyrics, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ is a fun and empowering summer anthem that resonates with anyone yearning for liberation and a taste of something beyond the ordinary. Ruby’s relaxed and dynamic vocal perfectly sets up the whimsical and otherworldly yet powerful and energizing feel of where the song takes you in spirit.

Inspired by vocalist Ruby’s connection with Piscean themes of water, love, and the dream world, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ is a quintessential Pisces song. ‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ has been on its journey after being written by the ocean in Lorne, Victoria, on a day when many planets were astrologically placed in Pisces (as was discovered in retrospect). Since then it’s been across the seas to the UK to record additional vocals in London with world-renowned John Reynolds (Sinead O’Connor, U2, The Corrs) before being mixed by legendary Ash Howes (Kylie, 5SOS, One Direction, Ellie Goulding)

President Street are Melbourne-based duo Ruby and Pete. With 3 Top 10 charting songs in the UK Music Week Charts and an EU and UK tour with UK pop-rock-soul legend, Roachford in 2022, the duo have had extensive radio coverage that saw their songs added to over 130 stations across the UK and were featured artists on the prestigious music program BBC The Beat. Coupled with strong club support
and wide coverage in numerous influential lifestyle and music publications such as Wonderland, Rollacoaster, Headliner, and The Daily Express, the duo have been dubbed as “the ones to watch”.

‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ is a fun track that holds a deeper message of connecting with your heart’s true desires and its release is perfectly timed to get everyone thinking who they don’t wanna be without and escape with this Valentine’s Day.

So what are you waiting for? “Let’s swim together, get away from here!”

‘I Don’t Wanna Be’ is now available on all major streaming platforms, and its emotive resonance is poised to captivate audiences around the world.
