jennylee explains: 

"I had the pleasure of remixing an angel... I didn't want to approach it as one would when asked... I wanted to bring the emotion out in the song, like a great songwriter, I feel she really left it open for interpretation. 

"I was over the moon to express what I took from it all and I'm really grateful she trusted me to do so... "

The steady beat-driven take on the track is the final of a collection of remixes of Aunty Social's 2020 debut EP, The Day My Brain Broke.  


The EP documents a period of isolation (pre-Covid-19) and evolution as Daniela worked her way out of a destructive lifestyle. 

"There are a lot of underlying mental health things that intertwine everything together" says Daniela. 

The moniker Aunty Social is a tongue in cheek reference to when she would hole up alone inside and use music as a therapeutic aid to address her own struggles with mental health. 

Jenny Lindberg's debut solo studio album, Right On!, was released in late 2015; she was credited as "Jennylee". 

The album featured elements of new wave and gothic rock.
