Tackling the new year head-on, Selfish Sons are following up their debut EP released in early 2019 with their gripping, anthemic new rock track, ‘Sleep’ (out February 21) – listen here
2019 was undoubtedly a massive year for this three-piece with the release of their debut EP, ‘Sixfour’, which has now accumulated over 300,000 streams.
Wrapping up their national EP tour, they sold out their hometown Brisbane show and then later that year went on to headline in front of a remarkable 400+ crowd.
Adding to these milestones, Selfish Sons have also played alongside international acts including Twin Peaks (USA) as well as upcoming Australian artists such as IVEY, Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, Tyne-James Organ and The Vanns.
Now, their new single ‘Sleep’ exemplifies the band’s astounding growth over the past year and their solid ability to write powerful, tight-knit accessible rock that exudes their enigmatic personalities.
‘Sleep’ was written to help explain and provide insight into the burdens that come with insomnia and anxiety – a serious battle that frontman Jordy Marcs has faced in the past. He states:
“It led me through a dark place, where I became so comfortable at night that I started seeing everything differently, totally worn out and deprived. This song is about trying to figure out what was real.”
Despite the deeper meaning of this song, this dynamic track delicately balances cool, calm verses with explosive choruses that are tied together with an anthemic motif – making it a moving, feel-good and optimistic track.
Alongside the single release, Selfish Sons are hitting the road again in March and these shows are already selling fast. These shows will be their most intimate and exclusive shows to date – find all event information below:
