The Antlers make a welcome return with new single ‘I Was Not There’, a song Peter Silberman says is about ‘the elusive experience of complete presence. Across three scenes, the song describes fleeting moments of clarity and wholeness, and the accompanying feeling of leaving yourself’. It opens in evocative style as Peter sings about the wind picking up over genteel piano tones. As the song progresses, Logan Coale’s upright bass, Peter’s falsetto and subtle effects nd drumbeats add a sprinkling of magic to the already moving and powerful soundscape.
