Antarctica – 81:03

January 7, 2011

Antarctica was a band that I have recently become extremely fond of. They have a very nostalgic feel, which is strange for two reasons a) they disbanded in the 90s and b) I’m positive I’ve never heard them before this summer. 81:03 uses a very unique mix of shoegaze (Slowdive) and trance (Underworld) in a joyful upheaval of sound with pop mentality. If it sounds like I’m making this up it’s because I most definitely am, due to the fact that you really have to listen to this band yourself to get it.
