Efterklang – Under Giant Trees
We just posted some photos of the Piramida artwork on our website, showing the CD and vinyl package, for all of you who don’t have the real thing. Here’s a selection of the photos, see more under our work site. It’s Nice That was so kind as to write a post about the project, which you can read here.
Have you been wondering what an edible rendition of the Efterklang Piramida artwork might look like? Here’s the answer!
:–D These special Piramida cakes, made together with the lovely Sara Davis, were a surprise for Efterklang at their release party last night in Berlin. We made an album cover carrot cake, a pyramid shaped lemon cake and a chocolate planet cake. Uhmm!! A huge congratulations to Efterklang on their best yet. The album is out on Monday by the way.
How to make a Piramida cake….
Exiting news: Efterklang’s new single Apples from their forthcoming album Piramida has just been released today – you can listen to it here – and the single cover is of course designed by us. (If the player doesn’t work, you can download the MP3 instead)
Right now we are also working on a music video for Apples, together with Jakob Steen, who made Efterklang’s last video for the single Hollow Mountain. It’s really exiting and fun work and we can’t wait to show it! The video will be released already next week.
Back when we did a blog post about our cover for Japanese band number0, we wrote that we’d soon put up some process photos showing how we made it – which, in the mean time, we completely forgot! We just remembered, so here are some photos of how we created the artwork by combining fabric, glass and spray paint in layered images.
And here’s what the final artwork looked like:
Another day – another album cover :-)
Yesterday Turboweekend’s third album was released! We designed the artwork for both the album and the single On My Side. Go to our work page to see more photos of the finished album cover. The photo in the brush stroke is by Sofies father Hans Kruse, taken at a place called Artist’s Palette in Death Valley, Nevada, where minerals and salts in the ground give the mountains vivid colors!
Efterklang have just announced the release of their 4th album which will come out later this year, on September 24th. Here’s a sneak peak of the front cover which we designed, the rest is still in the making. Read more about Efterklang’s exiting project on their new website, and you can also see a trailer by Andreas Koefoed.
Today we received a package from Japan! It was a handful of copies of the album Parallel/serial by Japanese post-rock band number0, that we have designed the artwork for. The album was released this April, and we’ve been very exited to see how the colours turned out – we are very happy with the result.
The artwork is made of spraypainted glas layered with little pieces of patchwork fabric in between. We’ll post some process photos of how it was made very soon! We also designed the sleeve for the EP Returning.
This is the sleeve for the EP returning.
After a long wait, Turboweekend is finally back with new music. First single On My Side will be released this Wednesday in a special live stream directly from the band’s website at 8 pm!
Again we have made the artwork, for this single as well as for the album that will be released this summer. We used dynamic paint brush strokes and a beautiful photo from the famous magical mountain landscape in California called Artist’s Palette. The photo is taken by Hans Kruse, our favorite landscape photographer and Sofie’s father.
Remember to tune in on www.turboweekend.com on Wednesday at 8 pm, for a special preview of 3 new Turboweekend songs!
Just received a couple of cd’s of Clogs member Rachael Elliott’s solo project! We made the cover a few months ago and the album is really fantastic. Read more about the Bassoon project here.
