Guwahati: Nagaland-based alternative rock band Polar Lights has released its new single music video ‘Fallout’ on YouTube.
According to frontman Sungjem Mar Jamir, the song talks about fighting one’s ‘demons’, of fighting an inner battle against things that trouble him or her. The lyrics also goes on to say that it’s okay to have such ‘demons’ in one’s life.
Check out the video:
“I wanted to write a song that provoked the mind and in doing so be as transparent as I possibly could. If you read closely enough into the song, it may seem like I’m lashing out at the world but I’m not in reality. The song is about me lashing out at myself. It’s the conflict between the mind and the heart,” Jamir told EastMojo.
With its melodic and wide range of odd beats and riffs, Polar Lights has been making the right noise for alternative rock lovers in the region. The Dimapur-based band, formed on March 7, 2013, is behind some popular singles such as ‘Murder Machine’, ‘Empty Hallway and A Candle Light’, and ‘Beautiful Escape’, among others. The band also released its only EP, ‘Talking to The Trees’, in 2016.
Polar Lights consists of five talented musicians. With Jamir as frontman, the band also features Temjen Jamir on the guitars, Arenungsang Jamir on backing vocals and guitars, Moa Pongen on the drums and Lanu on bass.
The band is looking forward to release more music videos and singles this year. It is also gearing up to head out for a nationwide tour by June this year.
