Just as important to any great album as the music it contains, is the artwork that captures the attention of potential listeners. To ensure that our album art was as unique, colourful and vibrant as the music, we reached out to local mural artist Jill Stanton to create something magical for us.
"For the Capital City Records album artwork, I wanted to create a dreamy interpretation of the river valley through each season. The black background help the bright colours burst forward, and the cutout shapes create an all-over pattern where small “easter eggs” hidden in the composition pop forward with a second visual pass. The sihouetted figures interact with giant instruments and organic elements, heightening the surreal, dream-life feel of the piece." - Jill Stanton
