    Their LP betrays nothing other than attention to detail, enviable knowledge of their musical history and the ability to chisel hunks of belligerent punk that could revitalise the genre.
  2. 80
    They may be revisiting the fossilised concept of boredom, but they're bringing an original perspective.

    Much of what is great about Stockholm's Holograms can be located in their debut single "ABC City," a testament of the "desolation" of the grim suburbs of their home city delivered in a rowdy street-punk sneer. [Oct 2012, p.81]

    It's nothing new, sure, but it's proof that mining from the past is a surefire way to keep things sounding familiar yet fresh.

    Even when they're digging into the grit of a country's flaws or society's problems, the synth-driven hooks can be outright jovial.

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

    Hologram's monotone new wave reeks of a school band rehearsal, released into the wild before its time and without its signature song. [Aug 2012, p.100]
