The Hole Punch Generation
The Hole Punch Generation album showcases the sophisticated sound of this band. Each track soars and glides across manipulated electronics, shoegaze guitar riffs and the unique outpouring of Balthrop’s falsetto vocals. The pure emotional rawness of the tracks shines through – each one with a simple message tackling the existential issues about life, love, loss and decay. From the pleading outstretched message of the opener “Don’t Go” the listener is introduced to the mindset of young men who are in touch with their emotions, in touch with their needs as human beings and who demonstrate an intense empathy with their friends, families and lovers.
