Aunty Social – Cortex

Cortex is the third track we’ve shared of Canadian bedroom pop artist Aunty Social and it’s a somewhat brighter affair than Traveling Circus or Crack A Deal.

By Graeme Smith

I had to do a double-take when I first heard Cortex as I couldn’t quite believe it was the Aunty Social (real name Daniela Gitto) we’ve grown to love here at York Calling. Used to hearing a downbeat waltzing style coming from her, Cortex is a big, bright dance number that sounds like a different artist altogether. Daniela’s mournful vocals float in though and it all starts to make sense.

Cortex reminds me a little of Bjork at her poppiest and represents a whole new dimension in my love for this innovative and charismatic newcomer. Check it out below.
