The Antlers have shared the Derrick Belcham- and Emily Terndrup-directed video for new single ‘It Is What It Is’. A continuation of the story that started in the previously released ‘Wheels Roll Home’, the video features renowned contemporary dancers Bobbi-Jene Smith and Or Schraiber.

Peter Silberman gently sings about a friend freeing themselves from pain over a suitably refined and melancholic soundtrack that captures the mixed emotion that is hindsight: ‘The call coulda been answered. The wall woulda been questioned. The fall shoulda been prevented. But it is what it is.’
