King Nun release new single ‘Selfish’

The band have also announced that they’ve signed to Marshall Records.

King Nun have released a new song, ‘Selfish’. The track is the band’s first release for four years and coincides with the news that they have signed to Marshall Records. “In various forms and with far worse titles, ‘Selfish’ has been with us for a while,” said vocalist/guitarist Theo Polyzoides on the subject of the song. “Locked away in a remote recording studio, we wrote ‘Selfish’ through instinct and a ‘try, try, try again’ approach that drove us mad. “After all the isolated introspection, we realised that this song talks about the struggle of maintaining our lives as artists as well as people, and how music often leads to falling out, missing major events, and sometimes losing relationships entirely. But despite the selfishness of it all, we carry on for those fleeting moments of clarity and the joy of expressing ourselves. “In short, this is a melodramatic song about responsibility, and what we owe to others as well as ourselves. Perhaps the solution is to learn to be in several places at once or to split ourselves in two. Who can say?” Of their signing to Marshall Records, meanwhile, they said: “The people at Marshall Records are great and they’re helping us make the music we really want to make; we’re having an incredible time.” Watch the video for ‘Selfish’ below:
