Remember that cryptic video The Antlers posted on YouTube a few days ago? Yeah, it turns out it was a trailer for their brand new EP, Undersea, due out July 24th. Here is what the band had to say about the release:
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.
