Antelope

Independent

 

In an industry built on hooks and spectacle, Perth-band Antelope have found a way to demonstrate the originality of music in a modern form. Harnessing technology to incorporate numerous natural sounds alongside a broad combination of instrumentation; the post-rock quintet thrive on musical storytelling.

The five-track EP kicks off with Perennial, a glossy and siren-like song built on atmospheric synth, melodically ringing guitar and booming tom fills; the track stimulates a pleasant array of relaxing and enjoyable emotions as it looks to represent the circle of life.

Dusk may be the sensual highlight of the EP. Again featuring a relaxing vibe with fewer highs and more soothers; the track builds up from a simplistic and vibrant bass fill supported by composed and informal lead guitar; into a strong and energetic end that proves perfect for a sunset.

Whilst Antelope’s musical storytelling is incredibly impressive; their instrumental tracks are tough to familiarise with. Tracks such as Canaveral have the potential to build into a solid rock track with a pumping chorus; an outlet the quintet may need to look into if they ever strive for mainstream success.
