SELFISH THINGS Drop Music Video for ‘Flood’
It comes as no shock that there’s quite a fair bit of water in the band’s latest video for Flood.
Toronto alt-rock band Selfish Things have released the visuals for their latest single Flood.
The video sees alternating scenes of vocalist Alex Biro struggling underwater and the band rocking out in front of flashing blue lights. The cool-toned aesthetics of the video complement the chills sent down your spine by the thundering instrumentals, and you’ll be left wanting more.
Describing the meaning and inspiration behind the track and video, Alex 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.
On top of the video, the band has announced that they have signed to Weekday Records/Sony Music. Speaking about this new partnership, Alex expresses:
The band and I are incredibly excited to be signing to Weekday Records/Sony Music. 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.
