Klaas Diersmann tells a supernatural-edged love story set in spectacular Irish landscapes for Twin Atlantic.

The Glasgow band's lead singer Sam McTrusty plays the male half of a troubled relationship in which his partner is lured by the strange pink neon shapes that float around the lush Kildare countryside. Diersmann's integration of these alien lights and shapes is brilliantly done through practical effects and post VFX is brilliantly done to give the video its attractively ethereal atmosphere.

“After an initial chat with Klaas, I knew he understood the vision for the video instantly," says McTrusty. "I was blown away by the remote beauty of Kildare, Ireland, and it only added to the mystique.”


“The song feels like an intimate story revealing the reality of a relationship. I envisioned the couple in a beautiful yet eerie landscape, which took us to the wilds of Ireland. This enabled us to contrast their emotional entrapment within their relationship and their memories with this almost other-worldly wide open space.”
