In the secludedness of a tiny island many inspirations can ripe. Even though the three-piece HOLM is from Zurich and not from any island, their music displays an emotional journey in the retreat of a secluded place. The single Colored Dark from the band’s freshly released debut album Through Windows, is an ambient rock piece with the beautiful looseness of improvised composition. The steady bass-line and drumbeat offer the perfect base for the atmospheric dance of synth tunes. Starting out as shy and careful wavy electronic effects, the single peaks in a synth rock anthem, which sounds like a battle between crashing drums and heavy emotionally loaded synthesizers. Check out the entire LP if you want more to dive even deeper into the HOLM cosmos. You won’t regret it.
