The new single by Holograms, "Luminous," sounds just like we have come to expect from the young Swedish punks: searing synthesizer hooks, fast riffs, and understated vocal melodies. The lyrics express a yearning for delivery, for "finding a cure," to go "higher and higher" - a sentiment that comes off as quite dark, framed as it is by a frenzy of guitar and drums. The accompanying video was shot by singer Anton Spetze and shows a barren, autumn Stockholm, and the drummer, Anton Strandberg, practicing soccer.

The "Luminous" video was released this week to promote Holograms' North American tour, which kicks off tomorrow in Washington D.C. On Friday, December 6, Holograms will perform at 285 Kent in Brooklyn, NY.
