After recently returning with their first new song in six years, ‘Wheels Roll Home’, The Antlers have today shared a new track called ‘It Is What It Is’. It arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup and featuring dancers Bobbi-Jene Smith and Or Schraiber. Check it out below.
“‘It Is What It Is’ is a song about hindsight,” Peter Silberman said in a press release. “It considers what might have changed had you handled things differently back then, and the reluctant acceptance that it’s too late for all that now. It’s the inevitability of changing seasons, transitions that feel like loss in the moment, but come to represent growth over time.”
The Antlers’ last album was 2014’s Familiars. In 2017, Silberman released a solo album titled Impermanence, though the group refuted rumours that they’d broken up. Last year, the Antlers toured and put out a 10th anniversary reissue of their classic album Hospice.
