Nach einer selbstbetitelten EP erscheint heute mit Routines das Debütalbum der Indiepop-Band HOOPS. Für unsere unregelmäßige Cover-Art-Reihe kommentiert DREW AUSCHERMAN, Songwriter und Sänger der Band aus Indiana, das Cover folgendermaßen:
We were really pleased with the album art work. I think the way Jenna’s art perfectly represents our sound as a band. That is why we asked her to not only do our EP but our debut record too. Her style is instantly recognizable which is something I admire dearly. Whenever she sends over one of her ideas it always has me scratching my head and thinking, „how did she do that?“
Und so hat es die Künstlerin JENNA BEASLEY gemacht:
My image-making is ruled by intuition. I like the feeling of following a visual idea wherever it goes and allowing a degree of chance to enter into the process. With the art for Routines, I tried to reflect some of the sensations that I appreciate in the music – it has a calming quality but at the same time can be unexpectedly strange and dark. I thought that using a few simple, distinct forms would be a good analog for the catchiness of Hoops’ sound.
