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.
They may be revisiting the fossilised concept of boredom, but they’re bringing an original perspective.
Its an intriguing and welcome change, despite the fact that it isn’t the most groundbreaking album we’ve heard this year.
It’s an album of razor-sharp irreverence, infectious energy and, beneath its surface, genuinely intelligent songwriting.
