In a boomtime for aquarian concepts in the indie sphere (see also: DIIV f/k/a/ Dive; Lemonade’s Diver LP and its glorious “Neptune” single; Azealia and mermaids; seapunk!), the Antlers are bang on trend with Undersea, the title for their just-announced forthcoming release. It’s slated for July 24th and is due via Anti-, representing a shift away from Frenchkiss, the label Peter Silberman and company had called home for their first two records Hospice and Burst Apart. On Anti-, the Antlers will sit alongside the likes of Islands, Man Man, Kate Bush, and Tom Waits, bringing life to the eclectic roster’s otherwise unoccupied emotional/falsetto space.
The new record has a website, and this one-minute audio/video teaser that is drenched in pathos, which is both a true fact as well as a terrible pun on the record’s title. You are welcome. That’s here:
