Holograms :: "Chasing My Mind"

A bizarre intersection of garage rock and hi-fi synths, Sweden's Holograms emit an energy that is both confusing and infectious on lead single, "Chasing My Mind". The lead synthesizer line, a motif introduced early and expanded upon with an increasingly tweaking treble, has been given a voice all its own. Notably offset from the lead vocal, the synth hook operates as the chorus, orbiting spasmodically around the melody with the gravitas of an over-caffeinated elementary schooler saying, "Mom look, look Mom, Mom look." Perhaps it is just the right dose of youthful energy for a band who looks to blow far past the green copper rooftops of Stockholm.
