Antiphons began in 2011 as the solo project of songwriter, Brian Dove, and has since evolved into a 4-piece rock band. After spending a year on a farm in rural Oregon, Brian returned to Richmond, Virginia with some fresh wounds and the workings of what would become their debut album, Groan. From cathartic loneliness (Flock) to baritone dirges (Rotten Apples), this is an album unified by its sense of deep yearning, and the naked acceptance that what once was is no longer. All we can do is groan and move forward.
