So on Saturday the very excellent The Darkened Seas launched their debut EP at The Annandale Hotel in Sydney, and being the lucky lady I am lately I got to work with the band on the cover typo. These guys are young but holy hell they know their ways around dirty rocky blues so I highly recommend you go like their Facey and see a gig before Sydney’s music scene closes in on itself!
Some working sketches are included as I walked the band through a range of options in order to get the best feel for their music, ideally avoiding anything to ornate and or overly detailed while still generating a considered, bluesy tone. As you can see, the final product was nearly a perfect lift from the working sketch.
Big thanks to the band, James (the most professional manager man in music), and Big Anna for the sweet connections. You all, ahem, rock (see what I did there!).
