LOUDER NEWS: Polaris release 'Vagabond' music video
Sydney metalcore band Polaris have just revealed their new music video for 'Vagabond', taken from their ARIA Nominated and #3 ARIA Album Chart debut album, 'The Death Of Me'. Drawing visual inspiration from classic movies such as Mad Max, Star Wars, Dune and Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the 'Vagabond' music video was filmed entirely outdoors and shot in natural locations.
Vocalist and bassist Jake Steinhauser said: "This video has been a long time in the making and is probably the most ambitious visual project we’ve ever worked on. When we first considered doing a video for 'Vagabond' we knew that the vibrant sunny attitude of the song’s chorus was something we wanted to reflect in the visuals - something a lot brighter than what we’d normally go for.
“The name of the song and the sound of the intro guitar motif had always inspired desert imagery for us so we began the concept focusing more on the visual ideas we wanted to accomplish, with the narrative then forming naturally around those images and elements of the song’s lyrics."
The video was released alongside the announcement of a summer Australian tour, their first tour dates in 16 months.
Drummer Daniel Furnari said: "It’s turned out to be kind of ironic that the lyrics of 'Vagabond' mention this idea that “nowhere feels like home”, which was originally a reference to constantly being on the move when we were touring... But after the last year of being unable to tour and travel, there were a lot of times when our actual homes didn’t really feel like home either, because where we really wanted to be was out travelling the world and playing shows!
“We are so psyched to finally shake the rust off and get back on the road after what will have been 16 months away from doing what we love most. We’ll be hitting some of those little pockets of the East Coast that we don’t get out to as often, as well as some spots that we’ve never been out to before."
