CRITIC REVIEWS

83
PRETTY MUCH AMAZING

Deliberate and coherent, the 22-minute release soaks in a flood of vivid, self-contained bliss.

81
PITCHFORK

Silberman's lyrics are as simultaneously distant and evocative as ever, but the overwhelming amount of detail surrounding them renders them somewhat irrelevant here, a bubbling treasure chest in Undersea's sonically overwhelming fish tank. 

80
THE 405

There is nothing here in the vein of 'I Don't Want Love' ... instead there is only a leaner, more perfectly realised sample of The Antlers' musical manifesto.

80
BEATS PER MINUTE

If Undersea does indeed signify the beginning of a new chapter for The Antlers, it’s pretty great so far.

80
DROWNED IN SOUND

.. an EP that feels much more significant than its 22 minute running length would imply, and for songs far more absorbing than many bands achieve in their entire career, let alone in between records.

80
PASTE

If this is simply a tease of The Antlers’ next full-length, we’d all better prepare for an epic, mind-bending masterpiece.

80
POPMATTERS

The Antlers’ new four-song EP, Undersea, departs somewhat from the emotional turmoil of their recent output, but holds tightly to the idea that each release is more than just a collection of new songs, but rather a unified whole. 

70
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

The slow guitar, meditative drums, haunting horns, and effects sink into four tracks that almost listen as one, yet stand out individually.

70
NO RIPCORD

Undersea feels like The Antlers most democratic effort by a large margin, and so it is understandably their most varied, sonically and in terms of quality.

70
UNDER THE RADAR

The meditative flow of the music feels complete, though not quite as intriguing.

50
NME

Where ‘Undersea’ falls down is in their reluctance to organise their woes into anything approaching a song, preferring instead to meander in opaque sedation.
