Continuing their recent singles series, The Antlers unveil new song “Rains”, out now digitally via Transgressive. The song was recorded and produced by frontman Peter Silberman who also sang and played guitar, piano, and synthesizer. Michael Lerner provided electronic percussion and frequent collaborator Nicholas Principe mixed the track. “Rains” follows previous single “I Was Not There.”

Silberman says of the song:

“Rains” is an optimistic song about the possibility of renewal. As if encouraging openness to change, springtime points to an inevitable summer that seems unimaginable in a desolate winter. Rainfall ferries away last year’s leaves, reanimates colorless grass, and invites new life to emerge.”

In 2021 The Antlers released their first album in seven years titled Green to Gold, a bucolic record which Pitchfork described as “a post-rock orchestra playing around a campfire… the sound of hard-won peace of mind, rendered in the lightest brushstrokes.”

The release was followed by the Losing Light EP, a reimagining of four tracks from Green to Gold. Peter Silberman has also co-produced the recent Wild Pink album ILYSM, marking Silberman’s first foray into producing a record for another artist outside of the context of The Antlers or his solo work.

Since last autumn, The Antlers have been releasing stand-alone singles “Ahimsa”, “I Was Not There” and a Brett Arnold reworking of “Green to Gold”.

The Antlers will play a one-off, special show at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge on June 7th. The band will perform in the round as part of LPR’s 15th Anniversary Celebration. Purchase tickets HERE
