The Antlers announce Green To Gold, their first new album in seven years

Acclaimed indie act The Antlers have announced their first new album in seven years - Green to Gold will be released on 26th of March. You can preorder the album here

They have also shared new single Solstice, which you can watch below. A continuation of the music videos from the 2020 singles Wheels Roll Home and It Is What It Is, this film is the third in a series of ten created for Green to Gold in collaboration with directors Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup and world-renowned contemporary dancers Bobbi-Jene Smith and Or Schraiber.

 

"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," lead singer and songwriter Peter Silberman explains. "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."

Green to Gold is the band’s first new music since 2014's Familiars, and easily their most luminous to date. "I think this is the first album I’ve made that has no eeriness in it," Silberman asserts. "I set out to make Sunday morning music."
 
Unlike other Antlers albums, Silberman didn’t feel compelled to turn a human experience into a circuitous mythology. He chose a more direct approach: documenting two years in his life, without overthinking or obscuring what the songs were about. "Most of the songs on Green to Gold are culled from conversations with my friends and my partner. It’s less ambiguous about who’s speaking and who’s listening," says Silberman resolutely. "I think the shift in tone is the result of getting older [...] It doesn’t make sense for me to try to tap into the same energy that I did ten or fifteen years ago, because I continue to grow as a person, as I’m sure our audience does too. Green to Gold is about this idea of gradual change," he sums up. "People changing over time, struggling to accept change in those they love, and struggling to change themselves. And yet despite all our difficulty with this, nature somehow makes it look easy."
