In-keeping with their close working relationships with visual artists and their own live audio-visual work, flies+flies are releasing their debut album Spring as 12" ltd edition handmade screenprints and A3 posters with digital download.
The artwork is by Johnny Bull - renowned painter, graphic designer and cover artist for Repeater Books, a radical publisher with ties to the band. The screenprints are done in one pass, meaning the blend of colours on each is subtly different.
The idea was to question the fetishisation of vinyl as an art object - given most of us actually listen to music digitally, there’s no real reason why a physical format has to be playable?
Includes unlimited streaming of Spring via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
