The Antlers are an indie rock band that came out with their critically acclaimed Hospice album in 2009. Peter Silberman is the frontman of the group, and is creatively responsible for the songs. Possibly autobiographical to a certain extent, Silberman crafts a masterful concept album about an emotionally abused relationship. "Bear" is a tired lullaby that reverberates in solitude; his words are spoken in retrospect. The chorus brings the song to life as drums, horns, and electric guitar fill the space that the verses have.
They recently released Burst Apart, please support this band.
