The Antlers have revealed that they are set to bring out a four-track record (note, they’re not calling it an EP…) at the end of next month.
Entitled Undersea, it is to be released 30 July on Transgressive Records.
The band had this rather grand and vague little tidbit to say about the short release:
“It begins in the dream of a peaceful flood. Water covers everything and rises. We take a deep breath in and a slow breath out. Everything is changed.
Time slows and stretches as a connectedness washes over everything. We’re left treading water, backstroking into the future.
Undersea is the feeling of suspension- memories suspended in time and space, energy suspended in the air around us. It’s the serenity of drifting off to sleep or of sinking to the bottom of the ocean. It’s both the comfort of knowing that some questions have no answers, and the torment that we’re never meant to know the truth.
We’ve searched for patient, colorful sounds and found a meditative calm, a persistent pulse that leaves room for everything to breathe and expand as a new world takes shape.”
The tracklist is as follows:
- Drift Drive
- Endless Ladder
