Swedish quartet Holograms adventurously plunder through the post-punk sounds of yesteryear through their 2013 album Forever, their second album since first meeting in 2011. Singer/guitarist Anton Spetze's Jonathan Richman-esque vocals and backing synthesizer equally supply the icy cool grandeur and energetic madness that only add to their mystique. While their sophomore album revisits the big sounds of Joy Division from the mid '80s, their self-titled debut Holograms features a turn towards New Wave and punk; it will certainly be exciting to see where their music takes us next. Performing tonight at the Constellation Room.
