Meet Holograms: Melancholic Dominican Rock Duo

Read more

Née: Kelvin Uffre and Radi Pina
Raíces: Dominican by way of New York City
Sounds like: Your brain on a candy flip or beautiful Gregorian chants with rock and roll.
You should listen to Holograms because… you want a detox or a mind-expanding voyage, but either way, you’ll definitely get some mind alteration.

Medieval dark chimes with polyphonic harmonies kick off Dominican via New York-based duo Holograms EP debut, Coma Night. Cause really, I’ve never been in a coma, but if I was, it would probably sound something like the initial-track “Alonely.” With a little bit of Syd Barrett’s Opel and a little bit of Bram Stoker’s Dracula Soundtrack, the Holograms have something nostalgic about their music — melancholic organ-mode effects and echoing hymns that overflow the dissonant guitar strums, almost reminiscing a Baroque-eque sound that’s found in the title track. Holograms’ 5-track EP is excellent for a therapeutic retreat tailored for drug rehab in the catacombes of France, or maybe just an intimate pretend tarot card reading session with your lover.
