Album To Check Out: The Antlers – Undersea EP

Back in 2009, The Antlers debuted their deeply moving, heartbreaking masterpiece of a record Hospice. With the record filled to the brim with emotional turmoils, I almost wondered how the band could possibly try to top their debut, with the highest of its apex seemingly reached.

The band didn’t even try. Instead, with their sophomore record, Burst Apart, Peter Silberman and company decided to go to a sonically deeper direction. Yes, the emotional subjects – death and loss – still abound. But the music itself started to go deeper. To become more sonically fuller.

The Antlers continues this direction with their Undersea EP. As apropos with its name, Undersea has the band continuing on a deeper direction. It’s four songs, but it is four songs with such emotional weight that it fills like a full-length. This one is going to weigh on you.

Check out the excellent lead track Drift Dive embedded below.
