Polaris has released a new music video for the song “Dusk To Day.” “This was definitely our most ambitious clip in terms of concept and execution, and it was really exciting to work on something with more of a visual narrative which we haven’t done in quite a while, with our friend Kieran Ellis Jones who we’ve been wanting to work with for a long time!,” says drummer, Daniel Furnari.

Furnari also adds, “Lyrically, “Dusk to Day” deals with insomnia, which is something that a couple of members of the band have really struggled with. It’s a song about that awful consuming anxiety that can come from being awake when everyone else is at peace, and the way that can play tricks on the mind when it’s allowed to wander. After tossing around a few ideas we realised that to get this right we would have to tap into a feeling of paranoia, so we started to develop our own little psychological thriller short-film.”
The video was shot over a weekend in a little town of Blackheath deep in the Blue Mountains of Australia, where they found the perfect street with its own picturesque-but-creepy little 19th century style church. The video is “Disturbia”-meets-”Invasion of the Body Snatchers” hybrid of their own little small-town suburban nightmare, in which their sleepless protagonist begins to suspect that the people around him are being replaced one-by-one by something not entirely human. There’s also some influence from other films like “Rear Window,” “Shutter Island,” “It Follows” and “The Machinist,” as well as some recent TV series like “Black Mirror” and “The Sinner.”
