I’d worked with Echo Lake on two music videos before I did the album artwork and they were pleased with the visuals I’d produced and we’d got to know each other quite well by then. Thom’s a big fan of prog rock record covers and they were really into sci-fi imagery and maintaining a 70s look, bold graphic style coupled with their existing ethereal colour schemes and lo-fi textures.
Linda had already amassed so much amazing band artwork that it meant I had a really solid basis to make something beautiful and fitting. It was also really nice that I got the opportunity to create the collage from photos I took at the same beach in Spain where I filmed their Buried at Sea video.
