Taking sensitive subjects and making light-hearted music inspired by them will always be a bold and dangerous move for artists. Yet, Boston-based Indie Power Pop band Kid Gulliver gave it a bash in their latest single “Susie Survived Chemotherapy”.
As Amanda Palmer (who is definitely no stranger to adversity) says, it is an artist’s job to make light from the dark. The Psych Pop/Surf infused single irrefutably does that.
And while I can guarantee that a fair number of people will find offence in the sunny Indie Pop single, there will undoubtedly be plenty of fans. Make your own mind up on Kid Gulliver’s latest single instead of automatically falling into a virtue trap.
You can check out the latest single from Kid Gulliver which was released on January 22nd by heading over to Bandcamp.
