“”Selfishly I Sink” is one of the few b-sides from You’re Not You Anymore. Although it doesn’t really have a place on the record I’m still excited that the song finally gets to see the light of day. Lyrically, it’s a song about forcing yourself to find love where it doesn’t exist. It’s about trying to fill a void with things that are equally as empty.” – Brendan Murphy

Counterparts’ Private Room EP is a collection of songs recorded during the making of their last two records, that while not featured on those albums, are standout tracks deserving of their own proper release. Tickets are available at
