Upcoming pop punk heroes Stand Atlantic are absolutely, positively on the rise right now and they’re currently on tour with Alex Lahey across Australia, but their team up doesn’t end there… They’ve just released a collaborative remake of their song ‘Skinny Dipping‘ with Lahey for Pride Month and all proceeds from sales will go to the LGBTQ+ charity It Gets Better.
The It Gets Better Project inspires people across the globe to share their stories and remind the next generation of LGBTQ+ youth that hope is out there, and it will get better.
On the new rendition both Alex Lahey and Stand Atlantic frontwoman Bonnie Fraser had plenty to say:
“I’m so excited to be involved in this release with Stand Atlantic to celebrate Pride Month and support ItGetsBetter, states Lahey. “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.”
“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,” explains Bonnie Fraser. “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!”
