Swedish band Holograms' released their second album, Forever, over the summer and it's another gritty blast of angsty post-punk, definitely showing the non-shiny side of Stockholm. If you haven't heard it yet, you can stream it below. The band just made a video for "Luminous," a slice-of-life clip which makes its premiere in this post.
Holograms will be heading to North America this week for their tour with TV Ghost (who gave us their Top 10 LPs of 2013), stopping at 285 Kent on Friday (12/6) with locals Heaven's Gate on the bill as well. Tickets are still available but if you'd like to go for free, we're also giving a pair away. Contest details, and the video and album streams, below...
