Music Video Monday!: The Antlers - Drift Dive

If Delta Spirit, Dr. Dog, Band of Horses and The Lumineers aren't enough to pique your interest in the Shaky Knees Music Festival, I give you yet another reason, The Antlers. Ever since I heard the songs "In the Attic" and "The Universe is Going to Catch You", from the 2007 album, In the Attic of the Universe, I've been a fan and they are definitely highlighted on my Day 2 line-up. The Brooklyn based band has kept it consistent and now four studio albums later we're still reaping the benefits.

Most of you are probably familiar with their break out, 2009 release Hospice, which gave us the singles, "Two", "Bear" and "Sylvia", but they've since released Burst Apart, which blessed us with, "I Don't Want Love", "Putting the Dog To Sleep", "French Exit", "Parentheses" and "Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out". Last summer they released the EP Undersea which is where today's song can be found.

"Drift Dive" like many of The Antlers' songs is dreamy and the video is much of the same. It'd be cool to watch it at a planetarium as it kind of has that same Pink Floyd feel to it. If you like what you hear, I suggest you take a dive of your own into their catalog. I promise you won't be disappointed. Hope you had a great Monday and as always remember to live your soundtrack out loud.

"Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out"


  1. A band I've been meaning to explore, especially the older albums.
    Good choices here, I love how atmospheric the album Burst Apart (2011) is.

    1. I agree Burst Apart is a great album to put on if all you wanna do is chill. Listen to yourself and spend some time with their old stuff. I appreciate the read and hope you find some songs you like.
