Calgary, AB-based alt-pop act Selci is about to release her new EP, A SOFT PLACE on July 28, 2020. Earlier this week, she unveiled her latest single, “For You”, a confessional song about unreciprocated love that’s out today, she coos over the melodic keys-playing of jazz artist Timothonius.
With a series of strange and dramatic looks, the video for the track offers more of Selci’s signature surrealist vision.
“It’s about wanting something to go my way and not being able to have it…romantically speaking,” Selci says, with a laugh. “At first, when I was writing the song, I was poking fun at myself for trying so hard to get someone to like me, even after getting rejected. After a while, the writing process ended up very emotionally charged! Thinking back to the poor communication with past lovers and how sometimes I felt taken advantage of got me pretty fired up. This track became a reminder to myself on how not to act with my future lovers.”
