Brooklyn bedroom pop artist Alyse Vellturo (who records as Pronoun) follows her 2019 lowercase'd debut album, i'll show you stronger, with the all-cap'ed EP OMG I MADE IT, out June 11th via Wax Bodega. 

In a press release, Vellturo explains that today's fist-pumping Song of the Day is "about the uncomfortable feeling that everyone around you is growing into their own lives while I feel like nothing’s changing within myself. It’s the uncomfortable feeling of not wanting to be on this planet but knowing I really have to put in effort and figure out how to make life work for me. It’s about the uncomfortable but at the same time comforting feeling that others feel the same. It’s literally a hard look in the mirror, by myself, in a bathroom, asking myself what the hell is up. I’m talking to myself throughout the entire thing, but these days who isn’t."
