The Antlers Announce First New Album in Seven Years
Hear "Solstice" from the pair's upcoming 'Green to Gold'
Published Jan 13, 2021Long-running Brooklyn duo the Antlers took a lengthy hiatus, but late last year they returned with "Wheels Roll Home." As it turns out, that song is part of their first new album in seven years.
The band's return to form is called Green to Gold and follows 2014's Familiars. "I think this is the first album I've made that has no eeriness in it," the band's Peter Silberman said in a statement. "I set out to make Sunday morning music."
That Sunday morning music includes the new single "Solstice," which has arrived via a new music video from Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup.
Of the single, Silberman said, "'Solstice' is a flashback to the infinite days of peak childhood summer, innocent barefoot hikes, staying outside all afternoon and late into the evening, well past it being too dark to see. But it's remembered from the vantage of a present day that feels unbearably long rather than joyously endless. It's an invocation of those simpler times, an attempt to conjure the lightness of youth, before life got so damn complicated."
Watch the video for "Solstice" below. Green to Gold arrives on March 26 via Anti-.
