Stand Atlantic - Fear

Stand Atlantic
Hair Out

With a driving stomp of a beat and stabby guitars, ‘Hair Out’ is an explosive track that is the most Stand Atlantic thing I’ve ever heard. What I mean is, you know who this is the second the voice and guitars judder through the speakers.

The overall key theme is that the slick and accurate style from Pink Elephant is alive and well, with all the dynamics that their on/off-switch precision allows. Most bands use dynamics to take a song through a journey, and Stand Atlantic do that very well. What they also do is inject split-second dynamics throughout.

Similarly, this song has a great chorus, which many bands manage. What it also has is a punchy verse that I’m absolutely here for.

You can feel the sweaty venue in the core of this song; it’s alive and energetic. With ‘Hair Out’ and ‘Pity Party’ featuring on their forthcoming album, F.E.A.R., it’s already looking like being a classic.
