Bold statement, but Stand Atlantic have been my favorite discovery of the year so far. Iconic new-wave pop-punk riffs and beats with singalong choruses and killer vocals brought to you by Bonnie Fraser is what makes this Australian trio really stand out.
Their debut EP Sidewinder is nothing short of a triumph of modern pop-punk and the band has seen the fruits of their labor manifest themselves in several tours across Europe - including festival appearances and a headline show at London's Camden Assembly - and a US tour this fall.
In my interview with Potter, Bonnie and Jonno they tease new music this year (!) and we talk about all kinds of beautiful shenanigans like favorite Mean Girls quotes and that one time Potter got abandoned by his bandmates at a rainy festival overnight... ⛺️
Can't wait to see this band blow up, but I'd say they're well on their way.
