AAA – Arresting Album Artwork – The Horrors’ Skying by Neil Krug

The new album from The Horrors has turned a lot of critics’ heads and coupled with their previous album Primary Colours has succeeded in aborting the band’s reputation as overly-styled Hammer Horror extras.  Skying‘s dark psychedelic sound is wonderfully hypnotic and the band are one of Field Day Festival’s lineup highlights.  The album artwork of rainbow-tinted ethereal photography, by Neil Krug, mirrors the sound of the record and is a hazy, hippy, rock n roll daydream of images.  Neil’s work is beautiful and often shot with expired polaroid film to achieve the soft discolouration and double exposure effects seen in the images below.
