Track of the Day: John Seth – Selfish Lover

John Seth, the frontman of Cape Town’s self-proclaimed sungaze vanguards, Sakawa Boys, has followed up on the group’s July release, ’Lazy Eys’ with a solo offering. ‘Selfish Lover’ is an archetypical indie rock ballad, replete with Seth’s melancholic vocals and a lonely, forlorn guitar riff. A superficial comparison to Angles-era Strokes is unavoidable, with ‘Selfish Lover’ matching the beginning of ‘Call Me Back’ in both tempo and sound. But Seth offers a refreshingly genuine sound, the kind where every musical addition moulds around honest songwriting and a compelling voice.
