Having previously displayed youthful, shuttering energy on their debut EP, House Ghost, Holographic Sands return with a more assured and powerful set of songs on their second EP, Water Bodies. With the urgent yelps of Jared Carrigan rising above the skittering bombast of Tyler Losinski, Kyle Schaffer and Chase Wackerfuss, the band is able harness the nervous chaos that falls somewhere between early 20s rebellion and coming into one's own. The new extended play explores a palette of sounds - including rolling country twang ("Yarn Theory") and soaring hook filled pop ("Secrets") - winding them into a seamless sonic time-bomb. Record at Old Blackberry Way with Neil Weir and mastered by August Ogren,Water Bodies finds the band more refined and focused as they continue to build on their unique sound. With our se7enth release, Forged Artifacts is excited to unleash Holographic Sands' second EP on limited edition, hand stamped and numbered CD-R on Oct 1.
The limited edition CD-Rs will be available Oct 1 online, but you can grab one early if you go see the band open for Dent May tonight (9/18) or their house show on (9/20).
