New Song: Mayfly – Selfish Girl

‘Selfish Girl’ sees London’s Mayfly take aim at narcissists who refuse to acknowledge their privilege. Written and produced by London’s Elena Garcia (Mayfly), ‘Selfish Girl’ is anchored by synths that carry the same ice as the song’s sentiment. Garcia’s vocal is cool and assured above, snarling “For the fifth time today you’ve addressed your wealth”. A pulsating snare drives us into the chorus, the synths lightening as Garcia sings, “The princess talks like she’s one of us”. Garcia isn’t coy about her vengefulness, conversely, she gives zero shits, singing “Sounds harsh but I don’t care”. On ‘Selfish Girl’, Mayfly proves she’s capable of making infectious alt-pop that bares sharp teeth. Whatever you do, just don’t get on the wrong side of her.
