Amidst the rapid changes of our world, "No Rest" emerges as an anthem for those navigating their own paths in life, often feeling overshadowed by expectations and overlooking the journey that brought them to the present.

It’s based on not being able to do anything in yourself, but also recognising how far you’ve come”.

Self Torque skillfully blends elements from various subgenres, encompassing punk rock, indie, and pop rock. This fusion creates a captivating musical journey from the onset of each song, evoking a profound sense of 90s nostalgia reminiscent of bands like AFI and Alkaline Trio, yet preserving the band's authentic and distinctive essence.
