Boston's Kid Gulliver are one of the bands touring New England as part of the Whistlestop Rock Festival, and based on their latest single, they're sure to be one of the biggest hits. "Susie Survived Chemotherapy" is a bright and sunny song about a survivor of childhood cancer. It's power pop at its absolute most poppy, which seems a little strange given the subject matter, but what deserves a celebratory song more than that? Of course, there is a slight hidden edge to the song underlying the sunny sound, because they are from Boston after all.
You can listen to "Susie Survived Chemotherapy" below. The song is available now as a download via Kid Gulliver's Bandcamp. For more on Kid Gulliver, check out their website. If you're lucky enough to be in the Boston area, you can check them out at the Whistlestop Rock Festival this Saturday at ONCE Ballroom in Somerville, March 14 at Koto in Salem, and March 28 at Sun Tiki Studios in Portland, ME.
