While the single Clicks In undulates ominously with snapping beats penetrating the speakers, this remix by SOLLUS strips backs the track to its bare bones, allowing the vocals to shine while riding a wave of atmospheric and minimalist electronica.

CARALIS is the brainchild of former Anison front man Dan Frau, who began writing and creating music for his solo project after the band split in late 2014. Collaborating with producer and friend John Merriman, the pair have produced an industrial and, at times, psychedelic sound akin to acts like Caribou and Thom Yorke.
The single was recorded in just one day at John’s Crown Lane studio. Dan set about layering several drum tracks before adding atmospheric keys and vocals while John pieced together loops and samples, creating what would become Clicks In.
Creatively, CARALIS is a sonic departure for singer Dan having fronted alt-rock band Anison for a number of years. The band, who were signed to Spectra Records, were known for their alternative guitar sound and garnered support from the likes of XFM and BBC 6 Music. However, Dan has shown his creative dexterity, transitioning between alt rock and electro genres effortlessly.
Clicks In is released on 23rd March 2015 via Captoerra Records.
