Rising pop showstoppers Anteros unveil new single ‘Ordinary Girl’, taken from their debut record which will be released next year.
The London dream pop quartet have announced that their first LP ‘When We Land’ will be out on Distiller Records on March 1 2019.
Anteros are a band who refuse to be typecast. While standing firmly outside of any box, they’ve proven their ability to nail any genre or idea they put their mind to, having spent their formative years experimenting with dreamy indie pop, gritty electronic rock and shimmering disco.

‘When We Land’ is where it all comes together for the group in one glossy, masterful package. The four-piece have created a unique sound that is both wholly refreshing and reminiscent of the greats who came before them.
On new single ‘Ordinary Girl’, Anteros break new sonic ground with a bracing, introspective folk-rock sound, slowing the tempo and exposing a previously unseen side of their character.
Written for frontwoman Laura Hayden’s baby sister, the track dissects the feeling of being knocked down and the fight to move forward in the face of adversity; its stirring lyrics and anthemic hook make it a standout of the album and a testament to the band’s versatility.
Recorded at The Distillery with Mercury Prize-winning producer Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Marika Hackman, Bloc Party), ‘When We Land’ is Anteros’ first full-length release following a string of critically acclaimed EPs and singles, as well as a number of sold out headline shows and major support slots (Two Door Cinema Club, White Lies, Blaenavon)
They’ve been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders to name a few, and amassed over four million Spotify streams and counting. It’s with their debut album, however, that they fully introduce themselves to the world as a force to be reckoned with.
Anteros are Laura Hayden (vocals), Joshua Rumble (bass), Jackson Couzens (guitar) and Harry Balazs (drums).
