Chicago based queer power pop/rock trio Aunt Kelly's previous single, "Billboard Lady," was a power pop song heavy on piano. With their latest, "Nurturing," they're ramping up the rock without losing any of the pop hooks. While this new song might be a little heavier, it's still insanely catchy. The previous one reminded me of Ben Folds, but this one is more reminiscent of mid 90's alt-power pop bands. This is making me think of the pop side of Letters to Cleo with the ramshackle feel of The Gits. This song is a lot of fun, and has us even more excited about Aunt Kelly's musical range!
Kelly Hannemann says of her band's new song:
“I was in my first serious long-term relationship, and I think a lot of people have this idea before they get into a serious relationship, that they’re going to be so good at it and be an ideal partner. But then you meet someone and fall in love and it’s a surprise how much harder it is to really be there for someone.”
You can listen to "Nurturing" below. Remember is due out June 10. For more on Aunt Kelly, check out their Facebook.
