The first track to come out off of The Antler‘s sophomore album, Burst Apart. Honestly, I think it’s going to be flatly impossible for the band to top Hospice but I’m really excited to hear them try. When I first heard “Bird Bank” a few months ago I thought the band was taking things in a completely different direction, into dance-poppy type stuff. “Parentheses” proves they’re making some big changes, but definitely not in that direction. The track is weird, woozy and a little terrifying. I think I like it. If you want to hear the new album live at SXSW hit up NPR, and if you want to download the track, preorder the album.
