Earlier this summer saw the release of “Burst Apart”, the new album from Brooklyn trio The Antlers. With its swelling pulsebeats, intricately crafted arrangements and pop hooks, “Burst Apart” saw The Antlers’ ambition and artistry ascending to an extraordinary new plane, winning plaudits on both sides of the pond from the likes of the Guardian, Sunday Times Culture, Pitchfork and the New York Times.

Now, in advance of their upcoming UK tour in November, the band are releasing the breathtaking first track from “Burst Apart” as a single on September 26. Opening with the lines “You wanna climb up the stairs, I wanna push you back down/ But I let you inside/ so you can push me around”, it’s clear that The Antlers have not lost any of their ability to deliver a powerful emotional wallop along with a shimmering melody, as first showcased on their 2008 song cycle “Hospice”.
