“Holly Herndon’s second album Platform proposes new fantasies and rejuvenates old optimism.
Herndon has become a leading light in contemporary music by experimenting within the outer reaches of dance music and pop songwriting possibilities. A galvanising statement, Platform signals Herndon’s transformation as an electronic musician to a singular voice.
Transitioning to Platform, Herndon’s music becomes even more visceral by channeling the chaos and clangor of transmediated experience. Close to a contemporized version of Einstürzende Neubauten’s industrial rhythms or Joe Meek’s fantastical alien productions, Herndon’s auditory palette samples the domestic and digital environments of her daily life.”
