FLESH MECHANIC Holygram take the basic idea of post-punk and elevate it to the next level. You have your standard audible bass guitar, hypnotic drum beats, soaring leads and lighter-than-air vocals, but everything sounds so different from the other bands. If you're looking for an album full of anthems, Modern Cults is that album, and I guarantee Holygram will be a unique experience for you. Favorite track: Still There.

Christian Schaefer Featured this album on the fiftieth issue of RULE of THREE (bit.ly/RULEofTHREEbc). Some tracks seem to fly from the first note and A Faction by Hologram is one of them - wonderful guitars and uplifting synths pull you into the night. Distant lights passing you by while you loose yourself in the melancholy of tears on your face mixed with a huge smile of comfort. When the chorus lands and the whole track elevates once more you just have to close your eyes and spread your arms and let yourself go. Favorite track: A Faction.

Watch The city lights From your window You’re just a child No More compromise Throw your life away And feel alive Lose yourself In modern cults You know it’s been a wrong decision Lose yourself In modern cults You know it’s part of your religion Your religion Stand At the gates Moving lips to breath Your secret name No More sleep tonight Feel the pain And drown it deep inside Lose yourself In modern cults You know it’s been a wrong decision Lose yourself In modern cults You know it’s part of your religion Your religion Lose yourself... Lose yourself In modern cults...

The sea drowns out The siren’s song Our bodies bend Like giant prawns The things you feel The things you say Better keep Them locked away Bow your head Try to speak The mirror cracked Beneath our feet Is it real? A faction Affect and disagree A faction A faction Between you and me... The sea drowns out The siren’s song Our bodies bend Like giant prawns The things you feel The things you say Better keep Them locked away Is it real? A faction Affect and disagree A faction A faction Between you and me...

Signals 05:15 video
Talk to me Behind a wall Kiss and live Without a past Where’s the sense in all of it? Coz you and I We live in the past We live in the past Sometimes when I close my eyes I see you walk away And everytime the sun comes up The feeling is the same... When we are Talking high I will fall Into despair Where’s the sense in all of it? Coz you and I Sometimes when I close my eyes I see you walk away And everytime the sun comes up The feeling is the same... And every night you make me feel so strange And every day I still can feel the pain... Coz Sometimes when I close my eyes I see you walk away And everytime the sun comes up The feeling is the same...

Hideaway 05:53
You sell a world you made of clay You don’t know why you feel alive And now the days fall into sorrow And all the cities set alight No more hideaway... You save a life to sympathize Go save a light inside your pain We don’t know the city no more And all the people are insane No more hideaway... You sell a world you made of clay You don’t know why you feel alive And now the days fall into sorrow And all the cities set alight No more hideaway No, I can’t see you, well... No more...

Still There 04:18
I saw you there We started walking in lines The sea was wild It left a taste in my mouth And I don’t know why We started falling apart So ease my mind With your dystopian hands And I’m still there And I don’t know why We started falling apart I saw you change In our dandelion grave And I’m still there I’m still there… I saw you there We started walking in lines The sea was wild It left a taste in my mouth And I’m still there Standing there You started walking away I saw you You started walking away The sea was wild

Hanging like a sleeping swing Under dead channel skies It’s a place where no one sleeps & there’s a boy who lives next door He dances with a headless girl It’s the weirdest fashion show Distant voices from the sink I often feel I’m losing it Shadow kissing in the park I sometimes wish you stayed with me It’s a cold odd neighbourhood... When I see you walking home Humming make-out city blues Do you sometimes think of me? & time’s a friend to all who try And disappear inside a song That no one dares to sing Did it hurt you when we fought? Did it please you when we fucked? Make the devil pay your debts A charming man with metallic hair It’s a cold odd neighbourhood... Cold Odd Neighbourhood...

She burns like fire Her skin is cold as knives Forbidden secrets Her lips taste sweet like lies The more you hide Safe and sound Walk in fire Love unbound She’s like the sun Far away... She catches colours She is humming as she turns Magnifying glass Unwritten stories burned The more you hide Safe and sound Walk in fire Love unbound She’s like the sun Far away... She’s like the sun...

The light begins to fade Behold the rise of walls I watch our children dream So young and yet so far The picture disappears Our future like a hole A different shade of us A word is just A distant light...

A man is standing still At the corner of our street Children playing games To the rhythm of a beat Do you remember? There’s a place we used to go But things have changed Since you left Since you turned Away Away Another way Another way... Does it hurt you when We see each other dance? With a stranger Well, I can hardly tell I sometimes wonder Was there things we could have said But things have changed Since you left Since you turned Away Away Another way Another way... Look away Look away Look away In silence...
