New York’s The Antlers have recently returned to sharing new music after a seven year hiatus, revealing a handful of singles with what Stereogum has called "twinkling and soothing instrumentation." Today they share Just One Sec, another reassuring track from their upcoming album Green to Gold, out March 26th. The song’s bucolic new video was created in collaboration with directors Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup and world-renowned contemporary dancers Bobbi-Jene Smith and Or Schraiber.

"This song’s about the difficulty of escaping your reputation with someone you’ve closely known for a long time," lead singer and songwriter Peter Silberman said. "The sentiment of Just One Sec is an experiment with temporarily dropping the story between the two of you, offering and receiving momentary forgiveness, and experiencing that freedom. The idea was born out of a meditation retreat we attended a couple years ago, and the instructions of one meditation that I found particularly powerful."
Conceived and written almost entirely in the morning hours, Green to Gold is the band’s most luminous music to date. "I think this is the first album I’ve made that has no eeriness in it," singer and primary songwriter Peter Silberman asserts. "I set out to make Sunday morning music."
