When the world started coming to a standstill, Stand Atlantic said they would release a song every month while this is happening. So far, the Australian pop-punk band has released singles such as “Shh!” and “Drink To Drown,” and most recently they released “Wavelength.”
“Wavelength” is a bit different from what Stand Atlantic fans are used to hearing. The band decided to experiment with some new genres and make what they felt was right. The opening lyrics reference their song “Lost My Cool” from their debut album that came out in 2018. “I know I’ve always said I’m not a saint” which is a nice way to pay homage to their beginnings.
Following this, the song flows from a bit of an electric mashup of instrumentals to Bonnie Frasier pulling listeners in. “Yeah chewing on peppermint gum. Won’t hide your broken teeth, black tongue. Sweeping ugly statements. I’m just killing all my feelings. I’m done.”
The chorus of this song is full of upbeat energy and energetic instrumentals but holds a deep meaning in the lyrics.
“I’m tripping on your wavelength. Better than a way out of this. Wanna slip under your radar unscarred. To see you reap what you had sewn”
The lyrics of the song are relatable because most people have probably waited for someone to face the consequences of what they have done. While the lyrics are interesting, the song also showcases Stand Atlantic’s growth as musicians. This song breaks boundaries for the band and allows them to experiment with what is to come.
