The Antlers - Familiars

Last week, Brooklyn epic-indie craftsmen the Antlers teased us with a couple of minutes of new music, but they didn’t wait too long to let us know what’s up. In a couple of months, the band will release their first proper full-length since 2011′s Burst Apart. It’s called Familiars, and the band produced and engineered it themselves at their New York studio. The veteran indie producer Chris Coady, who just did such great work on Future Islands’ Singles, mixed it. The album opens with “Palace,” a song that totals nearly six minutes and features a prettily mournful music-box melody. The video, from director Hana Tajima, is all placid interiors and churning waters. Below, watch it and check out the album’s’ tracklist

01 “Palace”
02 “Doppelgänger”
03 “Hotel”
04 “Intruders”
05 “Director”
06 “Revisited”
07 “Parade”
08 “Surrender”
09 “Refuge”

Familiars is out 6/17 on Anti-.

  1. I’ve always loved this band so I might be biased, but if “Palace” is any indication they are about to explode. Honestly that track is new War on Drugs album good.

  2. Fantastic news! I’ve been listening to the Undersea EP a lot lately and wondered when more beaituful, infectious melodies would be coming. I hope they do explode–super nice, genuine guys.

  3. that song is fucking mind blowing

  4. Stunning song. Really gets great during the last half. But yeah, I’m not sure if they’re capable of making a bad song.
