HTRK - Body Lotion

client:
Sleeperhold Publications, HTRK
date:
December 2014

Art direction and design of the fifth EP release on Sleeperhold Publications. Body Lotion is a collaboration between Belgium’s Sleeperhold Publications, Australian duo HTRK and London-based artist David Ferrando Giraut. The three tracks on the record—”Sugar,” “Punch” and the title track, “Body Lotion”—date back to the sessions that led to the band’s 2011 album, Work (Work Work). Two of the songs feature the unmistakable basslines of Sean Stewart, who died in 2010, before Work (Work Work) was released.
David Ferrando Giraut’s distinctive artwork adorns Body Lotion’s sleeve and one side of the wax. (All three tracks feature on the record’s A-side.) Giraut’s previous installations have often carried a musical lean—he’s used LP covers and turntables in the past—and he’s found a rich stream of creative inspiration in music’s ability to create meaning and change in memory and behaviour.
