The band Those Without, featuring Oskar Westlin on vocals, Martin Spåman and Felix Lindquist on guitars, Filip Burman on bass, and Niki Hursti on drums, finds inspiration in the likes of Neck Deep, Hot Mulligan, and Loveless while forging their unique sonic identity.

Now, the captivating Swedish quintet makes a comeback with their newest single, Serenity, hot on the heels of their previous smash hit, Rose-Colored Kaleidoscope.

Renowned for their fusion of lively rhythms, uplifting melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics, the band guarantees to enrapture listeners anew with their distinct fusion of pop-rock vibes and pop-punk vigor.

Formed in 2017, the band has quickly gained recognition for their electrifying performances that seamlessly blend harmonic pop elements with intense instrumentals, inspiring sing-alongs, crowdsurfing, and mosh pits.

Regarding the inspiration behind Serenity, Filip and Martin explain, “After Rose-Colored Kaleidoscope, we wanted to explore a different direction, aiming for a pop/rock sound with subtle hints of pop-punk. We envisioned mellow verses, a massive chorus, and an anthemic bridge – elements that ultimately shaped ‘Serenity’ into what it is.”

Lead vocalist Oskar delves into the thematic depth of the single, sharing,​ “Serenity is a song dealing with mental illness taking a variety of shapes and forms while you’re in a relationship with someone, whether it’s in your head or someone else’s, and the feeling of serenity you get when receiving the reassurance you need from that certain somebody. Serenity means a lot to us as a band and we’re certain that the pop-rock influenced instrumentals and the melodic catchy chorus will bring you the sense of serenity you need. Something about the instrumentals written for this song spoke to me in a sense that demanded bittersweet lyrics – with a positive message in a negative lighting. Writing lyrics for Serenity has been a pleasure as well as painful, and I believe it will shine through throughout the contents of the song.”

Offering infectious melodies, relatable lyrics, and irresistible hooks, Those Without​’s Serenity provides a tranquil refuge for reflection amidst the chaos of the modern world.
