Available languages: EnglishU.K.-based indie rock group Anteros use playful melodies and often funky riffs to navigate personal lyrics. Formed in 2014 in London and named after the Greek god of requited love, Anteros features Laura Hayden on vocals, Joshua Rumble on bass, Jackson Couzens on lead guitar, and Harry Balazs on drums. Within a year, they had written a handful of tracks, collating them on an eponymous EP in 2015. The EP led to an increase in live bookings and festival appearances, which they focused on for three years, before heading into the studio in 2018 to record their debut album, When We Land, which saw release in 2019 via Distiller.

Anteros, the son of Ares and Aphrodite and brother of Eros, is the embodiment of requited love and punishes those who scorn it. The reference to this Greek myth is completely in keeping with the spirit of Anteros, an English band whose songs seek to bring people together into their benevolent universe and whose energetic rhythms and rock guitars act as aggressive guards protecting it. At the heart of this first album is learning the art of survival, as explained by the very “Blondie-esque” leader of this talented quartet, Laura Hayden “When We Land is like an introduction to life in your twenties. I think that when you turn 20, you realise that you know little about life and that you have to start figuring it all out from that moment on”. Recorded with producer Charlie Andrew (alt-J, Marika Hackman), this album is full of future hits and its combination of diverse influences from indie-pop (Drive On) to disco (Fool Moon) and intimate folk rock (Ordinary Girl) works brilliantly. When We Land is an album with a future as bright as Laura’s bleach-blonde locks. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
