Published Nov 08, 2019Toronto's Aunty Social — the alt-pop project of Daniela Gitto — has announced plans for her debut EP. The record is titled The Day My Brain Broke, and it arrives March 6 via Nettwerk.
Alongside the EP announcement, today, Gitto has also shared a new single titled "Crack a Deal," as well as its accompanying Jessamine Fok-directed visuals.
Gitto says the new song — and its chapters-long, nostalgia-subverting music video — tackles the expectation of the nuclear life:
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.
"Crack a Deal" follows the release of Aunty Social's "Trying" and "Travelling Circus."
Watch the '50s-inspired video for "Crack a Deal" below, where you'll also find the EP's tracklisting.
