Sweet Indie Band of the Week: The Antlers
Taking a page out of the Bon Iver handbook, The Antlers are the once-solo project of Peter Silberman, taking the vocal formula that made Bon Iver such a smashing success and adding a bit more ambiance and if you can believe it, an even higher falsetto. Singing so close to the microphone that you can hear him breathe and his lips open to speak, The Antlers have produced a fantastic, sobering record in Hospice, wrought with emotion and musings about mortality. Below is the music video for their single Two.
