The Sweet Serenades formed back in 2005 by Martin Nordvall and Mathias Näslund and swung from garage rock to softer atmospheres between albums. By 2014, Näslund left the band.

City Lights is the first album from the now solo project and finds Nordvall taking things down a darker path. On the title track, we follow Nordvall through the city in a late-night taxi ride with a kaleidoscope of bright electro-pop as he glances at his phone waiting for a sign that someone, anyone, is thinking of him.
