Stand Atlantic have just released a collab version of their track “Skinny Dipping” featuring fellow Australian songwriter Alex Lahey. Proceeds from the track will benefit the It Gets Better Project, a nonprofit with a mission to uplift, empower and connect members of the LGBTQ community all around the globe.
Check out the track, below!
“I’m so excited to be involved in this release with Stand Atlantic to celebrate Pride Month and support It Gets Better,” Lahey says. “As a member of both the music and queer community, I know how important it is to support one another in order to make a greater difference. There is no better time than now to be your true self, exercise compassion, and stand up for what is right.”
Stand Atlantic vocalist Bonnie Fraser reveals the meaning behind the track.
“Skinny Dipping is about the push and pull of accepting yourself for who you are vs. how you want others to see you and catering to what you think they expect or want. In this case, I was dealing with my sexuality. Having Lahey on this track was exciting for us – I feel like we are from different music worlds and breaking those boundaries and expectations is important, and essentially what this track encompasses as a whole!”
Check out the visual for the new song below.
The track can be purchased on iTunes, here.
The band will be supporting Lahey June 22 at The Forum Theatre in Melbourne, Australia.
You can catch Stand Atlantic at this year’s Reading Festival in the UK and Sad Summer Festival kicking off next month.
