The band’s radio-friendly pop rock, punk, and classic rock sound has made them a hit on the gig circuit in Piteå and Luleå. Formed by middle school classmates in 2018, the band consists of Petter Vikström on vocals, Viktor Öberg on guitars, Joel Fredriksson on bass, and Sebastian Nordaneldh on drums.
The fuzzy electric guitars in the verses are strummed aptly, giving the song a warm and inviting sound that draws you in from the first note.

Sturdy and well-rounded drums, along with the distorted guitars, balance the feel of the song and add to its catchy sound in the chorus.

It has a relatable quality and introspective lyrics which would resonate with listeners and create a memorable and compelling aural and sonic experience that truly connects. “Ran Away from Hell” by Brothers in Vain is a perfect emotive alternative rock, pop punk song, with a silver lining message and energy to savour.
