Song of the Day: Hope Vitellas

Artist: Hope Vitellas Track: "Picture Frame" Album: Komi Baby

In the interest of full disclosure, I went to see Hope Vitellas at Comfest purely for superficial reasons (see above photo). I came away from her Friday set at the Gazebo Stage very impressed with the light but catchy rock she played.

Apparently, I witnessed a special treat, as she opted for a more electrified sound than usual. The results were more forceful, festival-ready versions of the songs that appear on her latest album, Komi Baby, released last year.

This tune, in particular, breaks little ground in terms of singer-songwriter format. But what she does, she does well: clever testimonials of what we all face on a daily basis.
