CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Consequence of Sound

Too many bands have attempted to adopt that fractured Manchester sound, but Holograms sweeps up the pieces, tosses most in the trash, and yet saves just enough to make their own.

80
NME

They may be revisiting the fossilised concept of boredom, but they’re bringing an original perspective.

75
Beats Per Minute

Its an intriguing and welcome change, despite the fact that it isn’t the most groundbreaking album we’ve heard this year.

70
Drowned in Sound

It’s an album of razor-sharp irreverence, infectious energy and, beneath its surface, genuinely intelligent songwriting.

Holograms' take on post-punk doesn't offer too much other than some infectious hooks and energetic performances. Synthesizers occasionally pop up to electrify a number of these tracks as well.

Favourite tracks: Orpheo, ABC City, Fever
