V I O L A S ~ NOS SOMNIA

27 Aug

 

 

Using the photographs of Owain Griffiths the singer of the Cardiff band Violas I pieced together these designs for the new Violas E.P Nos Somnia, which is out today 27/08/12 on I KA CHING Records. The images come from a collection of photographs Owain took when taking time out in Nepal. He had already been ghosting some of the images together & came to me to take it to the next step & create the project into a finished package. Both Owains in the band Owain Morgan & Owain G. with artist Hannah Morris would visit me some evenings for design sessions, bringing with them gifts of cookies & muffins (yumm). We kept the idea of ghosting the images together, bringing an ethereal dreamlike quality to the images of mountaintops. They spoke of how their new recordings had matured into more epic dream-pop structures, we felt that the images were a pin-point reflection of their sound.  Nos Somnia is released on CD and also digitally on itunes, amazon, spotify etc.  Copies of the EP are available from the following independent record shops; Awen Meirion (Y Bala); Andy’s Records (Aberystwyth), Spillers Records (Cardiff); The Parrot (Carmarthen), and from www.sadwrn.com . Their Nos Somnia E.P launch gig is this Wednesday at Undertone, Cardiff with We’re No Heroes supporting. Gigs:

29.08.12 – Noson Lansio / Launch Night – UndUertone, Caerdydd / Cardiff
01.08.12 – Lodestar Festival, Cambridge
08.09.12 – Gwyl Gwydir, Llanrwst
