The DIY philosophy reigns true with Manchester’s no-frills trio Antelopes. Teaming up with the fiercely independent Blak Hand Records, a scouse label that released sold-out limited edition cassettes for Purple Heart Parade and The Watchmakers last year, Antelopes are thrilled to present their two self-recorded tracks It’s You and Girl.

The new songs are a fuzzy pair of pop expression so fun that you’ll want to get your dusty old Sony Walkmans out of dad’s attic. Lead single It’s You is a can of pure bubblegum pop laced with sweet garage-rock undertones. Girl keeps with the lo-fi aesthetic as a poetic little number, and makes for the perfect ode to the one you love just in time for Saint Valentines Day.

50 hand numbered, pink coated tapes available for pre-order today from the Blak Hand Records Bandcamp. Each cassette includes a digital download  of ‘It’s You’, ‘Girl’ and exclusive bonus track ‘Got To Know’. Limited number of tapes available to purchase ahead of the release date February 13 at The Castle Hotel.

Upcoming Tour Dates:

Manchester – 7 February // for ‘Not A Summer Festival’ at The Castle Hotel

Manchester – 13 February  // with Blooms and Elk at The Castle Hotel

Withington – 14 March //  with Black Tambourines at Fuel Cafe
