2 BEARS – THE NIGHT IS YOUNG

designillustration

Album illustration / collage / design for ‘The Night Is Young’ by The 2 Bears.

For their second album The 2 Bears continued to explore their 90s house influences but incorporated elements of African musical traditions. Raf Rundell, one of the Bears, was born in Ghana and turned me on to Fante Asafo flags a few years ago. Joe Goddard, the other Bear, wanted a physical object on the album cover, and so it seemed appropriate to create a kind of imagined tribal relic telling part of the story of 90s dance but full of corrupted and distorted emblems from that era and beyond.

Released on double vinyl and CD.

Nominated FOR THE ART VINYL AWARDS 2014
