Selfish Things - Toronto

While taking their name from Jimmy Eat World’s “23”, with unmatched determination Selfish Things prove they are neither selfish nor self-serving.

The Toronto, Ontario four-piece, consisting of Alex Biro (Vocals/Guitar/Piano), Mike Ticar (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Cam Snooks (Rhythm Guitar) and Jordan Trask (drums), bring unabashedly honest music to a world fueled by false promises and pretences.

Frontman Alex Biro founded Selfish Things in the hope of shedding light on one simple, yet oftentimes overlooked, concept — honesty.

Vertical Love (released spring of 2018), produced by James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, Paramore, Underoath), resounds with the passion and wisdom of any seasoned band, yet also holds the unyielding determination of youth and discovery. The band delivers six tracks of pure veracity, while showcasing the personal journey of learning to love yourself despite the mistakes and moments in time when you feel far away from the person you are truly meant to be.

“I strive to find happiness in the truth of the world, regardless of its undying ugliness,” Biro says, reflecting on his past struggles of being within an arm’s length of dreams only to have them taken away by a mixture of luck, fate and human nature. “To truly love yourself and your life, you must learn to love the memories that define you.”
