Calgary alt-pop act SELCI dishes up another transcendent single, ‘For You,’ from her forthcoming EP, ‘A Soft Place’, out next Tuesday (28th July). Her brand new cut is a confessional song about unreciprocated love.
With a series of strange and dramatic looks, the accompanied video offers more of Selci’s signature surrealist vision. Lyrically, Selci turns a series of heartbreaking moments into a darkly humorous reflection on modern dating, calling herself out for her part in past rejections.
“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.”
