The lyrics of ‘No Time’ concentrate on the idea of release, with the pair revealing that “it’s about releasing yourself from negative thoughts and growing from our disappointments and failures.” The track, which was co-written and co-produced in collaboration with DJ and producer Cassian, is also about “living life to its fullest potential because as cliché as it may be, life really is short, and everything happens for a reason”, said the duo.
Lastlings drew on their Japanese heritage to create the anime-style music video, while also drawing inspiration from one of their favourite dystopian science fiction novels ‘Never Let Me Go’. The visual was directed by Joël Durand, who explained that the idea behind ‘No Time’ is essentially a chase between darkness and light, it’s about family- a brother and sister that together face their fear of passing time. The video compliments the musician’s ethereal and dark aesthetic, creating a cohesive experience that goes beyond the sonic space.
While their hypnotic live shows are temporarily on hold, stay tuned for more exciting updates from Lastlings.
