Toronto alternative-rock band Selfish Things have just dropped the music video for their new single “Flood” today.
When describing the meaning and inspiration behind the track, singer Alex Biro states, “I wrote “Flood” with WZRD BLD the day after the Las Vegas shooting.” My wife was taking a climate change course in university simultaneously and I felt like I needed to find a way to talk about human complacency in the face of destruction beyond gun violence. Our species has this off-putting, innate ability to let things go to shit so long as it doesn’t directly impact us as individuals. The song was finished in under five hours – I’m extremely proud of it and the message contained within.”
Additionally, the four-piece has announced the exciting news that they have signed to Weekday Records/RED MUSIC. “The band and I are incredibly excited to be signing to Weekday Records/Sony Music,” Biro exclaims. “It’s nice to be working with people who hustle as hard on their end as you do as an artist on the road. We really look forward to a fruitful and lasting relationship.”
