The Antlers – “Crest”
A day after the Antlers teased their forthcoming Undersea EP with the lush “Drift Dive,” they unleashed another cut called “Crest” this morning. It’s a somewhat glitchy, sample-laden affair that explores similar sonic territory as “Drift Dive.” Remember the underwater dystopia from the first BioShock game? “Crest” would be a perfect soundtrack to the pensive parts where you’re just exploring the ruined town (as opposed to the scenes where mutants try to claw your face off). Hear it at NPR. Undersea is out 7/24 in the U.S. on Anti- and 7/30 in the UK on Transgressive.
