The Selfish Gene plays a unique brand of pop rock, a sound they call thematic storytelling in a progressive rock format. Their three-part harmonies and poetic, cerebral lyrics give their music a versatile style that ranges from delicate, hummable and poppy to grandiose and intense. The band was voted Best Overall Artist at the 2006 Madison Area Music Awards and has shared the stage with such acts as The Flaming Lips, Kings of Leon, Califone, Cold War Kids, Cloud Cult, Chad VanGaalen, The Waco Brothers, Leon Russell, and Blue Oyster Cult.
