Directed and edited by filmmaker and band member Stephanie Peters, the clips journey into the twisted and depraved mind of a psychopath is inspired by none other than the Crawford Family murders whose deaths rocked Australia’s Great Ocean Road community in the 1970’s and to date whose killer has never been found. “

The music for Solaris was written in an abandoned old farmhouse that we have access to near the great ocean road; as a response to a dream journal. When Steph hatched the idea for exploring the Crawford Family Murders it just seemed beautifully cyclical that we return to the place where the music was conjured up ”.
