Familiars“The Antlers magnify private sorrows to overwhelming scale, creating grand anthems.” —The New York Times
“The band occupies a space in the lower atmosphere: floating and free, but recalling what the ground feels like, too.”—The New Yorker
“Silberman shows that his voice is as versatile as any instrument in the band.” —The Washington Post
Familiars, the highly anticipated new album from The Antlers, will be released on Anti- Records in 2014. Their fourth studio album follows 2011’s critically lauded Burst Apart, which Pitchfork named Best New Music and NPR called “a delicate mixture of grace and intensity."
Familiars was recorded, engineered and produced by the band in their Brooklyn studio and mixed by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Beach House) at DNA Downtown Studios.
The Antlers is Peter Silberman, Darby Cicci and Michael Lerner. Silberman founded The Antlers in 2006 as a solo project and released two bedroom-recorded LPs before enlisting Cicci and Lerner to round out the group. As a trio they recorded and released 2009’s breakout Hospice and Burst Apart, as well as the 2012 EP Undersea.1. Palace

UnderseaThe Antlers’ debut on ANTI continues the Brooklyn trio's evolution begun with the acclaimed albums Hospice and Burst Apart. Their new 4-song EP, Undersea was recorded in early 2012.
In the band's own words: “In January, after returning home from a year of touring, we started something new. We knew not what it would become and had no purpose but to see what could happen in two and a half months of recording in our studio. We started from nowhere, and inadvertently tapped into a new beginning, the despair of Hospice and the subsequent recovery in Burst Apart felt like a closed chapter, and we suddenly felt the immense freedom to change the subject entirely. We let our creative instincts lead us forward, and they brought us here, to Undersea, an EP in length, but beyond that in scope. It’s an attempt to begin to express and communicate something bigger, something outside of ourselves and harder to explain.
The record begins with the dream of a peaceful flood, followed by an existential re-evaluation in the face of massive, all-encompassing change. We take a deep breath in, a slow breath out, and take stock of where we’re at. 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. Time slows and stretches.
We’ve searched for sounds that are patient and meditative, mellow and colorful and intended to calm. There’s a subtle but insistent pulse that leaves room for the music to breathe and expand. These songs are not in a hurry, and they take their time to unfold. In one sense it is familiar and terrestrial. But there‘s also a strange, fantastic, and largely as-yet-unknown world below the surface. The result is a kind of oceanic lucid dream of the future.”1. Drift Dive
