hmv's Next Big Thing... #191 Stand Atlantic
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Aussie pop-punk trio Stand Atlantic...
Who Are They?
Formed in 2014, Stand Atlantic hail from Sydney and consist of vocalist/guitarist Bonnie Fraser, bassist David Potter and drummer Jonno Panichi.
After a couple of acclaimed EPs on local label Run Records and tours with New Found Glory, State Champs, As It Is and With Confidence, the band have now bagged a deal with Hopeless Records, home of Neck Deep and Taking Back Sunday.
Now it's onto their debut album...
What Do They Sound Like?
The trio's influences come from across pop-punk, you can hear Jimmy Eat World in their towering melodies, the power and pace of New Found Glory in their arrangements and energy and ferocity of early Paramore.
Why Should I Be Excited?

Can I Hear Something?
