German duo Digitalism released their third album and first in five years in May 2016, Mirage. Some artists might sit back and ride the wave of the album, but they have been hard at work, releasing follow up EPs and singles. They are prepping a new EP, Zdar C1u6 (pronounced Star Club), that will be out at the end of March and we have the music video for the first cut from it, “Holograms.”
The video takes you back to the ‘80s with the moving, square 3d graphics that were so common among videos of the era. Various computer programs come and go showing the lyrics to this gorgeous and upbeat synth-wave tune from the pair. It is potentially the strongest track the duo has released since Mirage.
"‘Holograms’ was written just very recently, and sees Jence back on the vocals,” explains Digitalism to Magnetic. “We’re not only exploring how thin the line between reality and the virtual realm has become, but also musically entering a territory that feels new but very comfortable for us at the same time. It’s like a slingshot into something super exciting.”
Digitalism will release their three-track EP Zdar C1u6 at the end of next month. "Holograms" is one of those tracks and will be officially released tomorrow via Digitalism's Magnetism imprint.
