SELEKT FEW NEW SINGLE ‘THIS IS NOT FINE’

Selekt Few

Fresh off the release of “#1 Solace Lane”, Perth Hip Hop group Selekt Few are back with a spicy new single for the times. 

“This Is Not Fine” is a smooth but seething piece of political commentary and a sombre reflection on the world we are all experiencing as Australian’s in 2020. 

While undertones of anger are ever-present, the lyrics of this song provide a clarion call for empathy, maturity and understanding in our society – rightly pointing out that this is not the time for the kind of “emotional stage fright” too often shown by political leaders. 

With clear intent, listeners are encouraged to process the raw emotion associated with witnessing the loss of homes, of human life, and the lives of billions of animals during the 2019-20 bushfire season, and to feel empathy for people locked-in as a result of COVID-19.

With sombre tones and a heavy heaping of defiance, Selekt Few take aim at the Prime Minister and his Government; outlining a series of missteps and calling into question the ‘family values man’ image espoused by the PM.

From the Murray-Darling River fiasco, to ignoring firefighters requests for funding, to the PMs’ decision to holiday in Hawaii during our nation’s biggest bushfire crisis, to drinking at the footie during the second wave outbreak of COVID-19 – there’s a lot of ground to cover.

Instrumental by Rob Shaker, recording by Ruxton & Shareef, mixed by Ruxton, Mastered by Joe Carra at Crystal Mastering.

“We make music we enjoy, and pride ourselves in sharing honest thoughts on the personal and political issues we care deeply about”. 

Fresh off the back of releasing “#1 Solace Lane”, a sold out album launch and performing Perth Festival comes the anticipated release of our latest single “This Is Not Fine”.

The lead single from #1 Solace Lane – “Not My Way feat. Called & Paradox” received critical acclaim from industry professionals, eg:

“This song is full of hooks! The melody is super catchy and I am singing along after one / a couple of listens. I can clearly hear the hook (chorus) coming up and it is a massive change in the dynamics and feel. Nice one. I really love this song and can’t really fault it.” – Anna Laverty

Selekt Few have performed at venues across the Perth metro area and south-west of WA, and look forward to hitting up the rest of WA in the near future.
