The Swedish punk band Holograms just released a new video from their album Forever, and it's a nice little take on lo-fi punk anthems called “Luminous.” The band is currently on tour.
Reminiscent of some of the guitar sounds of the Misfits or Joy Division or even early Dead Kennedys, the band is the perfect embodiment of what was happening in 1980's alternative post-punk, a.k.a. alternative music when it was truly an alternative to the mainstream before being absorbed by the mainstream.
"After a year and a half of touring, losing their jobs, parts of their sanity and returning home only with the hope that their hard work will eventually pay off, they embarked on a new record drawing from the experiences that had simultaneously excited and exhausted the members," reads the press release. With a story like that, how can you NOT like this band?
