The Antlers: Scala, London
Ian Gittins, The Guardian, 23 May 2010
WITH THE BLANCHED, haunting Hospice, New York trio the Antlers made one of the most devastating albums of last year. Written by 23-year-old singer and guitarist Peter Silberman, the record chronicles the death of a bone cancer victim from the perspective of her abused partner and carer, and is a masterpiece of rarefied, delicately yearning guitar rock.
