New Music: Aunty Social – Hide Away

Regular visitors to York Calling will know just how much I dig Aunty Social’s bedroom pop sound. The Canadian artist can’t seem to put a foot wrong with each new release. Her latest Hide Away is no exception.

By Graeme Smith

Aunty Social (real name Daniella Gitto) puts so much of herself into each of her tracks. The result is something that feels refreshingly honest with well-observed and relatable lyrics. The story of Hide Away reflects the moments in our lives when we just don’t want to interact with the outside world. We’ve all been there. It’s breezily delivered through bass-heavy alternative disco, demonstrating yet another dimension of Daniella’s sound.
