«Waves» is the debut album of «The New Wine», a band described by some as four guys creating guitar- and synth based pop with light riffs, aesthetic bass and steady beats.
Over the last two years of touring, the band's sound have evolved and taken on a darker, more organic sound, while staying true to their catchy pop-vibe. The band wanted the cover to hint to this evolution, while still staying somehow visually related to their previous releases, «Bridge» and «Revolving Cylinder».
With this in mind we decided to continue playing with geometric shapes like we did on their EP, but to introduce a wooden cube as an organic element. We wrapped it up in several layers of PVC-film, which were then peeled off in the shape of waves to reveal the wooden core, much like layers of synth and electronics are added to the band's musical core, which is a traditional band using guitars, drums and keyboards.
