The Antlers confirm new Undersea EP
The makers of DiS' album of 2011 return with new material...
Yesterday, Antlers, put up this cryptic YouTube on their website with something about something called Undersea. It turns out those big teases have a new EP with four songs on it coming out on July 30th via the Transgressive Records label.
The band refuse to be drawn on whether the title means it has anything to do with DiS, but we're pretty sure it's a tribute record, dedicated to our readers for being so darn awesome. However, the band have made the following statement:
"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.
There is no hurry."
