Followers of the site will know I’m a big fan of Aunty Social, real name Daniela Gitto. The Canadian bedroom pop artist has ensnared me with her quirky, waltzing sound and clever lyrics. Her latest release is Trying, which benefits from a remix from New York based indie-pop outfit Porches.
By Graeme Smith
Trying has an understated opening. Daniela’s haunting vocals enter almost timidly, supported by a simple synth riff. Things quickly explode when the first chorus hits. The full force of the vocals arrive and the instrumentals reach a ’80s disco climax. Loud/quiet contrast is used to great effect at the track goes along, making that catchy chorus really pop.
This is a great team up between Aunty Social and Porches. You can check it out below.
