PROJECT

My client was releasing a reverb-soaked noir psychedelic album for their 8th release. I proved art direction, design and strategy around the vinyl release, working with photographer Marcus Tanner and Steve Giacomelli to unvail the album with strong branding, content and strategy for print and online platforms.

 

The Album: Line up shifts led to a trio becoming a duo, which sparked an entirely new batch of songs inspired by new looping equipment and playing techniques. Conceived early on as a movie soundtrack type album to an imaginary film only showing in the theaters of inner space. Loops, drones and ghostly almost-there vocals push the album into the dream-pop side of psychedelia, creating their most haunting yet soothing album to date.
