Stand Atlantic, formed by Bonnie Fraser (vocals), Jonno Panichi (drums), and David Potter (bass), are an Alternative Pop/Rock band from Sydney, Australia that offer a fresh blend of melodic hooks and power-driven instrumentals. From the release of their debut EP to their unparalleled live performance, Stand Atlantic are tipped to be the next band to break through the Australian scene. Last week the band announced their signing with Rude Records and today they are thrilled to share details about their forthcoming EP, Sidewinder due out September 15th. Sidewinder is available for pre-order now here.
At the end of 2016, Stand Atlantic entered Electric Sun Studio to record their 5 track EP with producer Stevie Knight (With Confidence), mixing engineer James Wiesner (As It Is) and mastering engineer Grant Berry (BUSTED, Me VS Hero, Milestones). The EP offers an honest lyrical nature at the core of the bands foundation, while showcasing their superb songwriting ability and exceptional musicianship to balance out both the pop and the rock aspects of their sound.
Off the forthcoming EP comes their first single "Coffee At Midnight." Fraser expands by stating, "Coffee At Midnight" is about that feeling of desperately trying to cling onto something or someone versus finally letting go and realising that maybe it just wasn't that great in the first place." The band enlisted in music video director Kieran Ellis-Jones to create a more abstract/non linear story of two people's relationship. Fraser continues, "something that most people can relate to."
