Holly Herndon

Platform

[4AD]

Combining catchy hooks with collaged syllabic arrangements, Platform is built on the strong foundation of Herndon’s unique vocal style: part-opera, part-Gregorian chant (and part-Enya). Glistening above crisp hi-hats and subterranean bass, Herndon consistently manipulates her voice into melodies that switch between abstract composition and pop excellence at a moment’s notice. Managing to sound both timeless and of the present, Herndon is confidently doing what all great artists attempt to do: look towards the future while being critically aware of the past.
