Polaris - Fatalism - Limited Clear W/ Green, Violet & Curacao Splatter LP Vinyl
Fear: humanity’s great divider, but also its most potent unifier.
It’s this very notion that lies at the beating core of polaris’s third album fatalism ; a record shaped by the sense of despair and dystopia that engulfed the world over the past few years, and the overwhelming accompanying sensation that we were powerless to change course. Equally steeped in angst alongside underlying catharsis, an expanded t hematic gaze and heavier sonic terrain, fatalism organically builds on the bleak imagery and hard - hitting soundscapes permeating polaris’s aria award - nominated 2020 release the death of me . But rather than wallow or stagnate, fatalism instead powerfully ho lds up a proverbial mirror while also galvanizing the sydney five - piece’s trademark blend of melodic metalcore, lush post rock, electronic flourishes and beyond.
