Alternative rock project Async Await is preparing to unleash Irretrospective Part 1, the first of a trio of EPs, on the 15th of September 2023 via Chameleons Risen. Fusing electronics with fuzz and distortion, Async Await delivers a multi-textural sound that crosses a dynamic array of styles and influences.
Project mastermind Mike Sorensen comments:
“Irretrospective Part 1 is the first of a three part series of EPs that comprise a reflection on my past and personal life. Part 1 deals with feelings of isolation, intrusive thoughts, helplessness and personal failure. These are the oldest songs in the series and harken back to the early parts of my adult life. The final track, “Bourbon”, begins to bring it closer to the present: a song written over ten years about some of my most regretted mistakes made in both distant and recent memory”.

About Async Await:
Based out of New Jersey, Async Await is a one-person electronic alt-rock project from multi-instrumentalist Mike Sorensen. The inaugural release of the Waves EP in 2020 laid the groundwork for the sound, incorporating guitars, bass, and vocals with electronic drums, software synthesizers, and DIY production. The sound continues to evolve with the Irretrospective series of EPs: 12 songs written between 2008 and 2021, some written, re-written, and re-worked laboriously, and others thoughtlessly thrown together in one inebriated evening. These songs, and Async Await as a whole, are part of a perpetual journey of self-discovery and understanding.
