The American indie rock band The Antlers have released a new single called It Is What It Is. The band had recently shared their first called Wheels Roll Home song after 6 years of break. The Antlers frontman Peter Silberman describes the single as about hindsight.
It considers what might have changed had you handled things differently back then, and the reluctant acceptance that it’s too late for all that now. It’s the inevitability of changing seasons, transitions that feel like loss in the moment, but come to represent growth over time.
You can watch the single music video directed by Derrick Belcham & Emily Terndrup below.
