Holly Herndon - "Home"

New MusicadminComment

With just a few brief albums and a handful of singles under her belt thus far, Holly Herndon is quickly becoming one of the most interesting electronic music producers to watch in 2015.

If I'm correct, she's slated to drop a new full-length toward the start of next year via RVNG Intl., and her most recent single here shows her incorporating lyrics into her usual mix of glitchy rhythms and strange vocal manipulations.

Not only is the chord progression on this thing pretty epic, but the massive bass and dense cacophony of rhythms is pretty overwhelming much of the time--of course, the visuals in the video attached to this song mirror this.

Rather than delivering yet another sparse, abstract experiment on par with "Chorus" or any number of tracks off Movement, Holly take a maximal approach with fantastic results.
