How did I not know about this band already? I’m not sure what’s worse, though, that I didn’t already know about them or that I didn’t know about them AND they’re releasing singles FROM THEIR SECOND ALBUM!!! Anyway, “Meditations” is the second release from Holograms’ upcoming sophomore album Forever and it is easily one of the best tracks of 2013! It’s lo-fi old school post-punk mixing The Clash with Killing Joke at times and even some of the anthemic beauty of early U2. This is also the sound The Bravery has been longing to capture (Think “Song For Jacob” off Stir The Blood).
Forever is out on September 3rd through Captured Tracks but in the meantime, you can whet your appetite with “Meditations” below.
