Returning after a distance of twenty years since their last release to the world, Selfish Gene return with a tasty track from their much-anticipated five-track EP ‘Dream of Electric Guitars‘ called ‘Cake‘.
Selfish Gene is a Tel Aviv, Israel-based indie alt-rock band. After being hidden away like lost treasure for so long, they finally satisfy our starved souls with a performance that revitalizes all of our conscious senses, with a guitar-packed shock-wave of soundscapes to lather inside.
This is the story about wishing you knew certain things a long time ago, as it would of saved you so much trouble over the years. You now know that no one can create magic and that the luck of the cards is actually in your hands, as you unhealthily torment yourself for not knowing this valuable information before.
‘Cake‘ from the Tel Aviv, Israel-based indie rockers Selfish Gene, is a thunderous effort from a band who have clearly missed being together and making high-tempo music together. Sung with a heavy gusto and featuring a powerful background, this is a sterling effort from this experienced outfit. With that taste for making music together back inside their creative music-filled fingers, it feels like they have just started and are ready for more to follow.
Dreaming of those electric guitars in their sleep for so long, has certainly woken up this giant of a band from their enforced slumber.
