'Stand Up (Clap Your Hands)' is a favourite from Koang's live performances, an invitation to the audience to get up and strut their stuff. He comments on the 'seriousness' of music in his adopted country, asking listeners to "show us your style, give us your attention", to dance with their loved ones and feel the message of his music; namely - peace, love and unity. The song revolves around the classic line "I love you, audience", delivered in Gordon's heart winning style. The track is followed almost immediately by a song of a very different nature, and yet just as inspiring. 'Asylum Seeker' is Gordon's tribute to asylum seekers in Australia - praising their courage and asking them to have patience in the long wait for permanent residency status in Australia. In a message published with the release of this new single, Gordon expresses confidence in the Australian government to help asylum seekers by granting their residency. We hope his message will be heard.
