After surpassing a goal of 1 million streams on Spotify last week following the release of his latest single “Long Distance,” Ontario-based artist August Brodie is excited to share a new track for fans: “Selfish“
On the new track, August Brodie shares: “Selfish” is a song that I’m sure anyone who’s been in a relationship can relate to, it’s about the moment in your life where you stop living to please someone else and start living for yourself. Too many times have I given my all to someone who doesn’t give it back, and I want my fans and listeners to know that sometimes it’s ok to do what’s best for them. Being selfish is often seen as a negative trait, but I think this song helps to think about it in a different light.”
August Brodie is an up and coming artist from Thunder Bay, Ontario making genre-bending songs mixing early 2000s emo music with pop, alt-rock, and hip hop influences. After starting the project in 2018, Brodie has since seen success on Spotify editorial playlists, culminating in reaching 1 million streams in June of 2020.
