Holly Herndon follows up her startling debut with Platform, a ten-track affair of complex electronic structures that have a sense of playfulness deep within the complex maze of beats built throughout. Over the years Holly Herndon has quietly become one of contemporary dance music’s most forward-thinking and fearless luminaries having kept her release schedule tight but showcasing pure quality throughout. The majority of her output has been released on RVNG Intl. but on Platform, legendary indie 4AD have stepped on board to make Platform a joint release from both labels. Having recently graced the front cover of Wire magazine, Herndon is getting much deserved attention from outside of the underground electronic world. On Platform, Herndon has ushered in the viewpoints of cutting edge Dutch design studio Metahaven and digital artist Mat Dryhurst to ensure that the themes explored were looked in to thoroughly and creatively. Her avant-garde brand of electronic composition tackles themes like cyber-surveillance, cyclical social segregation and feudalism in the modern day to create a hugely interesting and enjoyable album of futuristic avant-garde almost-pop style polyrhythmic beat patterns, sporadic vocal blasts and patchwork production that prove that within modern music Holly Herndon is a truly unique voice.
