A member of various bands over the last few years, Therese Lithner had no plan to go solo. However, so the story goes, one day three songs seemed to leap out of her from nowhere and that prompted the decision to go it alone.

Lithner’s first solo EP is set for release in the coming weeks, pre-empted by first single ‘Drown’. The track has a beautifully tense guitar line that is instantly arresting. As the verse comes in, Lithner’s voice sinks into a densely fuzzy bassline, before all the pieces of the track slowly sidestep together.

Of the newly released video, Lithner says: “[It] was made by the video artist Jakob Jennerholm Hammar. He had free reign to do what he wanted, and the result is beautiful I think. A little psychedelic and a little dark and driving, just like the song is”.
