AboutAntarctica Takes It! is the music project I began in 2004. I write, arrange, record, and play most of the instruments on each song. This is the band blog.
“Their second release on HDIF, Constellations follows the self-recorded, prickly lo-fi of 2008’s The Penguin League. They’ve come a long way since then - added a few more instruments, fine-tuned their ’60s pop sensibilities and been given a good polish - but not at the expense of what made HDIF fans fall in love with their laptop recorded debut.
The uninitiated could do worse than to listen to Constellations’ opening two tracks. The first, Bossa, is a twinkling nursery rhyme that introduces singer Dylan McKeever’s faltering, Stuart Murdoch-esque voice, while C&F again nods towards Murdoch, relying on jangling piano to carve a sparkling indie disco floor filler that could have easily slotted into an early Belle And Sebastian album.”
