The underlying atmosphere of this album is of a dark sonic and cinematic journey, both spiritual and physical, from dark into light. We commissioned experimental image maker Maria Mochnacz to shoot the campaign and her collection of customised, vintage cameras and different film stocks adds an edgy, psychedelic rawness to the story. The packaging features a striking but stark black & red colour palette on the outside, revealing a psychedelic splash of colour within. The cinematic landscapes inspired the typography which was influenced by the movie titles of Jean-Luc Godard and printed in semi-transparent blood red to support the album title.
