Polaris Premiere “Landmine” Music Video

Polaris have premiered a new video for their new song “Landmine.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Death Of Me,“ which will be released on February 21. Daniel Furnari commented:

“I think we all reach a point sometime in our late adolescence or early adulthood where we finally realise the world doesn’t just exist to serve us as individuals, and never did. A realisation that maybe you’re not as special and unique as you were made to feel as a kid – you’re not the star of everyone’s movie, only your own little life. Ultimately no one else cares if you succeed or fail, and no one is going to keep picking you up and dusting you off and pointing you in the right direction when you screw up. ‘Landmine‘ is a nihilistic, sarcastic celebration of accepting all of that.”

Drummer Daniel Furnari commented:

“We wanted to walk a line between maintaining what’s defined our band and brought people to our music in the first place, while trying to write for ourselves and keep ourselves interested. Being our second full-length, we knew it was important for us to surprise the listener as well – nobody wants to hear the same record twice. We wanted to give them things they wouldn’t expect, take them to new places, but also for it to be definitively a Polaris record, building on what we’ve been working towards.”

“We’ve experienced more of the world and gone out of our comfort zone, and I think that’s audible in the music. I think a lot of things people enjoyed about ‘The Mortal Coil‘ we’ve managed to retain, but we’ve stretched the envelope further in every direction of what we consider to be our sound. I just don’t think we could have thought of most of this stuff two years ago.”

Polaris Premiere “Masochist” Music Video

Polaris have premiered a new video for their new song “Masochist.” You can check that out below:

Drummer Daniel Furnari commented:

“We worked with Ed Reiss on this clip, who’s worked on some of our favourite clips from other Australian bands, and together we developed this concept of a painter who, forever dissatisfied with his work, finds he gets more enjoyment from destroying his own creations than from making them.

We asked our friend Zac Britt (Dream On, Dreamer, Young Lions) to star in the clip. Not only is he a talented actor and someone that we knew would understand and embody the character, but. he is also a painter himself. Zac actually contributed the vast majority of the paintings seen in the clip and then did a bunch of painting live on set. We filmed this clip after finishing off final vocal dubs that same morning, and then flew straight out to Canada the following day for a tour, wrapping up a very intense period of work for us!”

“As it happens, ‘Masochist‘ was the first song that we began writing in the album process. I remember I had the chorus, along with most of the lyrics and chords for the second verse, floating around in my head on one of the first tours we did for the last record, and once we had our first real break off the road, it didn’t take too long for the rest of the guys to help flesh it out into a complete song.

We had a very clear vision from the start of what we wanted to do with this song — something that straddled the line between our more metalcore sound and the emo and pop punk tracks we grew up on, with some new textures in the verses, a big singalong chorus and just enough riffs woven in. We’ve never opened a song in such a stripped back way — with just clean guitar and quietly sung vocals — so we were really proud of how that came together. In rolling with it as the first single, we wanted to introduce people to this record with something a little unexpected from us.”

“This song asks the question, ‘Am I to blame for my own negative state of mind? Is this habit of constantly revisiting depressive thought patterns something I do to myself because some sick, destructive part of me almost likes it, or feels more comfortable living in that place, and will I spend spend the rest of my life there and drive away the people I care about it because of it?’

It’s a heavy question to hit yourself with. But it’s one that I feel like a lot of us have asked when we’re battling through difficult times. This song is an honest representation of points in time when I’ve felt that way. And the truth is of course, no, you’re not to blame for your mental health.

It’s so complicated and being angry at yourself for the way that you feel leads nowhere, but sometimes turning the mirror on yourself like that is the only way to start becoming an active participant in your own well-being.”
