Hear Stand Atlantic And Polaris Team Up On Ten Pin Banger ‘Criminal’

Two of Australia’s biggest alternative acts Stand Atlantic and Polaris have joined forces on a juggernaut new track dubbed ‘Criminal’.

The devilish new alt-rock/metalcore hybrid has been sliced off Stand Atlantic’s forthcoming fourth studio album, Was Here, ahead of its arrival this August.

Stand Atlantic x Polaris – ‘CRIMINAL’

“Criminal is a small insight into how it can feel to be in this industry,” Stand Atlantic singer Bonnie Fraser explains in a press statement.

“It sometimes feels like you gotta keep your life a certain level of fucked up so you can make art that comes from a real place. I found myself wanting to invite the pain in and sometimes go looking for it.. just to create some cool shit that gets sold by people who at times may not give a damn about how u got there.”

On tapping Polaris for a blockbuster feature on the song, Bonnie adds: “It felt so right to have Polaris on this track. Dan and I personally bonded over this exact topic on a night out. After the song was already written so it felt like fate. We have wanted to work together for so long so having another Australian artist we absolutely love was a pure blessing and created a perfect storm.”
