A little over a year after the release of their excellent self-titled debut, CoSigned Swedish proto-punk outfit Holograms will return with their sophomore LP Forever on September 3rd via Captured Tracks. Those who can’t stomach a five-month wait are in luck, as the band’s already released the lead single, “Flesh and Bone”.
While Holograms’ drive has always been deliberate, this new track sees them curtail the undertones of playfulness for the depressive drive of thudding drums and snarling post-punk guitars. But with their vintage synth shimmering above the fray intermittently, it’s a matter of maturation rather than outright abandonment. Stream it below.
