It’s been two dry years since we’ve heard from Brooklyn’s quintessence of indie-rock, The Antlers.
So what has the trio been up to in all this time, you ask? Writing a new record of course, today releasing the second track ‘Hotel’ (after first taste ‘Palace’) off their upcoming LP – and surprise surprise, it’s incredible.
The breezy song opens its doors to a haze of whimsical synths and brooding keys that pave the way for the melodic partnership of that signature dreamy muted guitar and tiring horns.
In a way that is entirely The Antlers, the piece progressively builds upon each of these instrumental elements as lead vocalist Peter Silberman’s creeping falsetto seamlessly takes hold, bellowing, “and when I check out/it won’t matter how my name spells”.
‘Hotel’ is the second release from the band’s upcoming fourth LP, Familiars, the band’s first full-length release since 2011′s critically acclaimed Burst Apart.
