  1. 9.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Undersea just might be their most aggressive creative pursuit yet

  2. 8.3 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Fans of the pained sentimentality on Hospice may find themselves disappointed, but Undersea’s drenched distance reveals a maturity that the Antlers have never before displayed

  3. 8.1 |   Pitchfork

    As they often do, the trio's created its own world within the 22 minutes allotted here - only, the vibe is pure aftermath, with smoke rising from fresh embers and the environment taking on a lush yet deserted texture

  4. 8.0 |   Blurt

    Each of Undersea's parts - unique and of different moods - are standouts, both for their spirit of melodic experimentation and for the near-visual soundscapes they build and sustain. But as a whole, the EP is a beautiful daydream

  5. 8.0 |   Beats Per Minute

    If Undersea does indeed signify the beginning of a new chapter for The Antlers, it’s pretty great so far

  6. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Effort is well-rewarded for an EP that feels much more significant than its 22 minute running length would imply, and for songs far more absorbing than many bands achieve in their entire career, let alone in between records

  7. 8.0 |   Paste Magazine

    If this is simply a tease of The Antlers’ next full-length, we’d all better prepare for an epic, mind-bending masterpiece. But for now, Undersea is pretty magnificent all on its own

  8. 8.0 |   Tone Deaf

    Truly, if this is an indication of what can come to be expected from a new Antlers record, we’ve all got a long, emotionally exhausting, and musically rewarding time ahead of us

  9. 7.0 |   No Ripcord

    Undersea feels like The Antlers most democratic effort by a large margin, and so it is understandably their most varied, sonically and in terms of quality

  10. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The textural, deep-dive tracks of Undersea are a refreshing transition, recorded during a two-month block of time off

  11. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    The tension that held the full-lengths together and made them so compelling is absent from Undersea, but surprisingly, the meditative flow of the music feels complete, though not quite as intriguing

  12. 6.0 |   The Quietus

    For all its musical accomplishment, much of Undersea drifts past in a pretty, twinkly daze, leaving little impression in its wake

  13. 6.0 |   God Is In The TV

    If you were expecting a return to the lo-fi indie sound of Hospice then be disappointed. Undersea and its four tracks; Drift Dive, Endless Ladder, Crest and Zelda are perhaps an extension of the departure from that sound already made with Burst Apart

  14. 5.0 |   NME

    Where ‘Undersea’ falls down is in their reluctance to organise their woes into anything approaching a song, preferring instead to meander in opaque sedation
