The Antlers plunge into the serene depths of the ocean in their new video for "Drift Drive", a literal interpretation for the Undersea EP track. While the timing may not be the best (Hurricane Sandy, anyone?), the video finds meaning in its beautiful tranquility, something that can be greatly apprecaited from time to time. Watch it above, and if you've yet to hear the full EP, do yourself a favor and pick it up as soon as you can.
Just one day after revealing "Drift Drive," the opening track off of their forthcoming Undersea EP, The Antlers have made another track available for your listening pleasure. Courtesy of NPR, "Crest" is another slow, sprawling number that evokes the vastness and mystery of the ocean, a theme that gets more and more impressive as each song is released. Check it out below.
The Undersea EP is out on July 24th via ANTI- Records.
The Antlers recently announced a new underwater-themed EP titled Undersea, the quick follow-up to last year's Burst Apart.
