This past week the Sydney based four-piece band, Stand Atlantic, released a new single called “Shh!” to get ready for the new era. This is the pop-punk band’s first bit of music since the song “Hate Me (Sometimes)” dropped to finish up the last era. While the song technically dropped on the 13, some fans got to hear it earlier through Triple J Radio Station. The band gave little warning about dropping the song, so fans were extremely surprised to see it.
The song opens with the sound of a “shhhh,” immediately drawing people to stop and pay attention to the lyrics and song. Lead singer Bonnie Frasier draws you in by singing,
“I keep forgetting where I wanna go. And no, I don’t, I never feel at home. Yeah, yeah, feed in my throat like a leech. I guess I’ll keep, keep fleeing to my knees. And you’re the only one who ignites me easy. Yeah, yeah, feed in my throat like a leech. And just maybe my weak fingertips are better off burnin’ bridges.”
Most of us have probably felt like we don’t know where we belong, so hearing those lyrics feels like an outstretched hand of someone else who knows the feeling. The song then turns to an upbeat chorus which is perfect to dance and let loose too.
“You better think with your mouth. Before you shout ’til you bleed. Yeah, yeah, feed in my throat like a leech. Watch what you’re telling yourself. What do you shout in your sleep?. Yeah, yeah, feed in my throat like a leech. Feed in my throat like shh!”
Once again, the shh is a bit softer but, still demanding enough to hear the impact of it.
Stand Atlantic is currently on tour in Europe with The Maine but, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for future announcements and check out “Shh!” below or on any streaming services to see if you dig it as much as we have been!
