Boomkat Product Review:
Holly Herndon offers a techno-pop lament on internet security and a perceived invasion of privacy with 'Home'. We'd best let her explain the song: "For my debut album Movement, I communicated an intimacy with my laptop. It is my instrument, memory, and window to most people that I love. It is my Home. The ongoing NSA revelations have fundamentally changed this relationship. I entrusted so much in my device. To learn this intimacy had been compromised felt like a grand betrayal. Is everything done privately on my laptop to be considered a public performance? In 'Home', I address that invisible audience. It is a love song for prying eyes (an agent/a critic), and also a break up song with the devices with which I shared a naive relationship. There is something dramatic, teenage and vulnerable to this sensation - our relationships with these interconnected devices are still so young, so naive."
