|Artwork © Enoki, for the "In The Beginning" EP by Glü|
Earlier this year, I was approached to illustrate the EP cover "In The Beginning" for Bristol-based heavy grunge/stoner band Glü.
Glü's music immediately impressed and hit home for me. Mixing genres and daubing in experimentation, channeled and sustained suspense without overdoing it, and statically-charged subconscious timing; i.e. you're 'there' or rather 'gone' before you've realised it.
I feel happy to be a part of their journey, and look forward to following where they go from here.
Many thanks, Glü!
Glü are active across the following media:
"In the Beginning" EP:

|Glü's EP "In The Beginning" arrives: I did squeal a bit when I saw a photo of the card-boxed treasure on their Twitter feed. Thrilled to bits when the package Chris sent me came through!|
I've taken a photo of the "In The Beginning" CD and slipcase against the backdrop of some of my personal inspiration behind the art: "La Ronde" a play by German author/physician Arthur Schnitzler, and memories of Yayoi Kusama's exhibition at the Tate Modern last year.
The line art for the cover was drawn using a waterproof eyeliner..
Which, for the record.. Was not waterproof.
Signing off this entry with Glü's "Off The Scale".
