The Antlers announce Undersea

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:

Please enjoy the ridiculous shark .gif that now exists as @TheAntlers avatar, too.

  1. are you serious? so excited…they must live in the studio though

  2. Has it been confirmed yet that it’s actually an album and not an EP or something?

  3. I hope it’s a concept album about a doomed romance between a dolphin and a shark.

  4. for what it’s worth, they had several releases before hospice.
