Stand Atlantic have re-recorded their hit track ‘Skinny Dipping’ featuring new vocals from Melbourne artist Alex Lahey.
In honour of Pride month, all proceeds from the song will go to LGBTQI+ charity, It Gets Better.
The Sydney trio, who’re signed to Hopeless Records, are currently touring Australia as support for Lahey, giving them future opportunity to help promote the good cause behind the song’s second release.
Talking about the track, Lahey said, “I’m so excited to be involved in this release with Stand Atlantic to celebrate Pride Month and support It Gets Better. 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.”
While SA’s singer and songwriter, Bonnie Fraser, explained more about the song’s meaning, “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!”
