“The music is so melancholic and timeless, it made me think abstractly about how all relationships can be viewed as cyclical. Meaning two or more objects of events not existing or happening at the same time, the video captures a couple enjoying the simple moments in life with great emphasis on their emotions until time turns back. Speaking of the video lead singer Sam McTrusty said: “We’ve always had inspiration from still and moving images to influence our work. 

“We’ve dreamt of maybe one day getting to work on soundtracks and to have our dear friend Nick suggest doing that retrospectively for us felt like a great idea.”

He continued: “We love the emotion he’s captured and these fleeting moments in relationships are something we have always focused on in our writing, so there’s a real synergy in creative outlook between us.”

Director Nick Afchain explains: ‘One afternoon in May, I had Asynchronous on an endless loop. Following the release of their acclaimed album ‘Power’ last year, Twin Atlantic have kicked off 2021 with a stunning visual for album track ‘Asynchronous’, directed by Nick Afchain and shot in Glasgow and Edinburgh. “The constant repetition of happiness, dissolving into hardship and back again to happiness – and that is if you have good one!”
