record sleeve for the sheffield-based band, 65daysofstatic.
_how
this is one of a series of covers 65daysofstatic designed themselves as a part of their ongoing wreckage systems project. this particular EP cover they asked if we could apply our own treatment to. we printed out the artwork they'd made and got to work on it with a sponge, some water and a metal surface.

_how
65daysofstatic wrote and released this song in support of palestine and its recent conflicts with israel. the song was released on bandcamp on a "pay what you want" basis with all proceeds going to medical aid for palestine. for the first 24 hours of the song's release the band matched all sales with money from their own pockets. the band raised 4000 GBP in the end.

the song's artwork was created using a photograph caspar took in berlin during the 2020 global pandemic.

_how
through 2020, the first year of the global pandemic, 65daysofstatic began work on an ongoing subscription project. fans made regular payments in order to receive a constant supply of music and other material throughout the year, published the moment it was produced. by the end of the year the band realized that in amongst the bits and pieces they'd worked on there were two records worth of material that were worth casting in stone. thus we began work on the two vinyl releases you see here.

the packaging is an attempt to turn the digital graphics 65 created on their computer screens during the year into an original lasting physical experience one could see and touch. in and of itself a reminder perhaps of one of the strangest years of our shared lives thus far.
