Selfish Bodies is a female lead alternative pop rock trio based in Edmonton, AB, formed in February 2018 and their latest single Hideous was released on 13/01/2023.
The band combines elements of rock pop, alternative rock and indie pop to create a dark-wave, synth-inspired sound, that takes us on a nostalgic trip back to 90’s rock pop.
The pop-inspired vocals have a grittiness to them that means this track leans more to the alternative side of things. The vocals are powerful and have lots of emotion in them that portrays the themes of the song to the listener. Harmonizing back ups vocals are a great accompaniment to the leads that gives the song great depth.
Musically, this track switches seamlessly from pop to rock and back to pop again with ease. The synths and electronic sounds throughout the track give it a pop rock vibe, but the guitar solo at the end of the track, along with the heavy drum beats, really make this track an alternative rock one.
I really liked this song and listened to it a few times before writing this review as I wanted to hear everything the song had to offer.
Iso for all fans of pop/rock, rock, alternative and even synth music, please go and give this a listen. I really don’t think you will be disappointed. I am very much looking forward to what else this Canadian band has to offer!
