[POST-PUNK] Going by a lot of the music coming out of the region lately, growing up in Scandinavia must really suck. Thanks to the international intrigue generated by teenage punks Iceage, the world has learned that Denmark is full of pale, scowling kids with so much pent-up rage it can only be expressed via abrasive, near-formless noise tantrums. And, according to Sweden’s Holograms, the situation in the land of ABBA ain’t much better. The band, who still lives at home in the working-class town of Farsta, is more into melody, but the synth-damaged post-punk of its second Captured Tracks album, Forever, is no less cold, bleak and abrasive. “I’m so tired!” goes one of the cheerier choruses. Apparently, in Sweden, 18 is the new 60.
