Toronto bedroom pop artist Aunty Social announces debut EP
21 January 2020
'The Day My Brain Broke' is set for release on March 6th
Bedroom pop artist Aunty Social announces her debut EP, ‘The Day My Brain Broke’, will be released on March 6th, 2020. ‘The Day My Brain Broke’was written during a pivotal and cathartic time for Aunty Social (real name Danela Gitto), with each song chronicling a chapter of her evolution as she worked her way out of a toxic lifestyle — computer, mic, and MIDI in hand.All of the artwork was self-created by collaging mixed media with older personal family photos to help honestly illustrate her feelings and experiences behind the music.
Her latest single, ‘Crack a Deal’, is out today, along with a cynically saccharine video that plays with concept of the classic “American dream” vs. nightmare.
Daniela explains, "This song is a prayer to the 9 to 5 gods begging them to give me a break. All my circumstances prepared me for a conventional life except the actual desire. I worked a 9 to 5 office job getting good pay, did two years of college and did pretty well with only 1 year left to graduate, but instead, I dropped out and worked only to fund my music. It was hard balancing a job I hated just to fund my dream job. This song is how I expressed the conflicting thoughts that came along with it."
“Each song represents something that affected me during my upbringing and during this journey into a toxic lifestyle,” says Daniela. “There are a lot of underlying mental health things that intertwine everything together.”
The moniker Aunty Social comes from Daniela’s past insecurities and periods of isolation, when she’d use music as a therapeutic aid to address her own struggles with mental health.
The EP’s first track ‘Trying’, is an introspective, electro indie-pop jam that dives into Daniela’s religious past, and the crisis that followed when she left it all behind. The track was picked for the #2 spot on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist the week of release.
