Captured Tracks

By: Abbie Gobeli

"Flesh and Bone" -

“Energy, honesty, heart, and spirit” is what comprises “Forever” according to Holograms. “Forever,” their second releases emerged after a tumultuous year and half consisting of touring, losing their jobs, losing some sanity, and returning to their home in Sweden.  Andreas Lagerstrom, and Anton Strandberg have fallen on tough times include large debt but they were determined to work hard to make their new record happen.

“A Sacred State” introduces you to the increasing intensity that builds throughout the record.  The duo wanted to capture the feeling of playing in a church to grip a larger sound.  The single, “Flesh and Bone” quickly follows tying in with the wrath that is depicting in the cover art, courtesy of French painter, William Bouguereau’s “Dante and Virgil in Hell (1850)”.

 

Other mythical stories are incorporated in the track, “Attestupa” which means “a place to strike down your kin.”  It is a Norweigan myth where an elder of a family will jump off of a cliff if they are unable to support themselves due to sickness or old age.  They do this because they don’t want to burden their family to take care of them.

Despite the dark themes that permeate “Forever”, Holograms attacks the darkness by finding a light at the end of the tunnel with tracks including, “Meditations”. Holograms will be performing in Minneapolis on December 11th at the 7th Street Ent
