“Luminous” starts with an ominous shot of a suspended stake, hungry to be plunged into something soft and vital. Then it cuts to Holograms just hanging out on tour, doing things you might expect a Swedish punk group to do. Football, shows, parrots. It’s a bit like a short horror film that wants you to forget it’s a short horror film. Let’s not think about all the bodies they may or may not be stacking up on tour and just enjoy.
Holograms’ sophomore LP Forever is out now on Captured Tracks.
