New Music: Aunty Social – Aunty Depressants

Aunty Social, real name Daniella Gitto, is a Canadian bedroom pop artist who I’ve covered extensively here on York Calling. She never fails to impress me with her music and her new track Aunty Depressants is no exception.

By Graeme Smith

The track is inspired by Daniella’s experience of coming off of antidepressants and it’s full of the same disorientating feelings that she felt during the withdrawal process. A complex instrumental arrangement has elements coming and going. The tempo changes unexpectedly and Daniella’s vocals fade in and out, coming to the fore in a powerful mid-section.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Aunty Social really is like no-one else out there when it comes to her musical expression. I absolutely love it.
