Get the champers out, we’re about to witness a moment.
Anteros have been teasing a moment like this for a while now. Last year, they seemed to be glued to the road, playing shows all over the place and turning stages into their own at every stop. We’ve seen the shimmering indie-pop highs laid out again and again, but there’s always that moment where a band becomes the aspiration they’ve been aiming for - and for Anteros that moment is here, and that moment is ‘Drunk’.
Strutting its way right to the middle of the room and making sure everyone is watching, it’s the sort of instant hit of lush pop-laden magic that would leave its mark no matter what year, decade or era it would land into. Doused in glam yet packing that sense of gritty reality, ‘Drunk’ does something that makes the many who’ve attempted such a pop heavyweight never factor in, being natural. That sense of style and occasion sweeps through every flick of Anteros, and in turn points towards a sound that’ll quickly become their signature.
In just over three minutes, Anteros flip everything on its head - and now find themselves in a tier of bands that are about to lead something special. Get the champers out, we’re about to witness a moment. Jamie Muir
