There is an unsettling rawness to the music of Swedish foursome Holograms. Characterized by its minor chords and weighty vocals, their latest single “Meditations” entices the listener to raise hell. While parallels to fellow Scandinavians Iceage are unavoidable, Holograms present a relatively lighter take on a post-punk sound. Set in a cemetery and along jagged cliffs, both distinctly haunting locations, the video for “Meditations” carries a similar sense of uncensored emotion while the slow moving cloaked figures present a welcome juxtaposition to the track’s urgency. “It’s a Yin Yang story, but the darkness takes over,” explains director Emmanuella Zachariou, who cut the video by hand. If Holograms is the darkness, we’re more than wiling to succumb to it.
