The Antlers of Romance is an artist and musician based somewhere in Dublin. Their identity is unclear. They could be driving the car next to you or working beside you on the production line. They have been writing and drawing for some time, creating a hybrid concept work which combines music, illustration, and animation.
The music is dark, with a strong pulse and a bouncy, electronic sound influenced by 80’s Italo Disco and House Music.
Lyrics describe apocalyptic scenarios and robots wrestling with supressed emotions. Visual inspiration comes from 80’s sci-fi comics like Heavy Metal and Hard boiled by Geoff Darrow.
‘The Antlers of Romance’ is a quote from the book ‘Gormenghast' by Mervyn Peake, an artist who also used words and drawings to create hybrid, hard to classify works describing fantasy worlds.
Music and videos will be released at regular intervals, along with new remixes by The Antlers of Romance.
