Holograms - ABC City VIDEO
Holograms are a band out of Stockholm, Sweden and have just released their debut self-titled album via Captured Tracks. Their sound is very rough, raw and edgy and has had me comparing them a tad bit to bands like The Horrors and The Libertines. It does have the early 80's punk feel to it but at the same time it comes off as something more modern and that is a perfect fit for 2012. Take a look at their press photo above, as it is fuzzy and somewhat distorted, that is exactly what you get with their music.
Take a listen below to the track 'ABC City', and you will get a sense to what I am talking about. I honestly listened to the album for the first time today and my first reaction I had mixed feelings, but like so many times taking a second listen to an album you get a more clear picture, and to me Holograms sounded exceptional.
