Familiars 2014

Familiars has received rave reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone, who commented that “Familiars finds the Antlers on a new, magnificent level of heavy songwriting” Many critics alluded to the growth of The Antler's artistic approach on the album MOJO called the work "another existentially-minded beautyturning agony into something approaching ecstasy" Loud and Quiet commented on the record's success: "Slow-burning, poised and richly beautiful The Antlers have been responsible for a handful of the most soul-shifting moments in guitar-based indie rock over the last few years, and this should see the band cement their place in the genre's upper echelons"
