Hate Me (Sometimes) is Stand Atlantic hun eerste single sinds de release van hun debut album Skinny Dipping in oktober vorig jaar. Er werd ook meteen een video uitgebracht die vol zit met felle roze en groene kleuren, alsook gezichtsverf, dozen op hoofden en bizar kleine handen van zangeres Bonnie Fraser. Voor wie zangeres Bonnie Fraser (en dan vooral haar karakter) kent, zal het extraatje aan het begin van liedje niet verrassend zijn: je hoort haar namelijk heel random ‘spaghetti’ zeggen. Jokes aside, het liedje smaakt zeker naar meer en we hopen dat dit de aanleiding is naar een volgende stap in de carrière van de Australische band.
