Toronto-based alternative rock band Selfish Things have announced their debut EP, Vertical Love, will be out March 16th. After a string of successful single releases, earning notable positions on playlists such as New Noise on Spotify, this will be the band’s first full body of music for fans since they started in 2015. Pre-orders are available here.
Co-produced by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Dashboard Confessional) and lead singer-songwriter, Alex Biro, Vertical Love serves as Biro’s full transition from singer-songwriter to an all-out alternative rock band with Selfish Things.
“‘Vertical Love’ came into being after what was one of the most tumultuous periods of my life,” explains Biro. “It’s a body of work that’s representative of a time when I was struggling to eliminate my nihilistic outlook and replace it with something that was innately more sustainable and emotionally fruitful. I’ve always had a tendency to contemplate whether or not we choose the path we walk, or whether god/the universe/deity has placed us on a path that we have no control over. Looking back on it now, I think all of these songs are indicative of my struggle for control over the things I can’t understand or make sense of. The pain and suffering that come with sentience are necessary as a means of quantifying the depth of our experiences as living beings.”
