Album cover Electric AlleyCat
Holland’s Next Top Electro Sound is coming (loudly) from the amplifiers of Electric AlleyCat. This four-man band, consisting of Jeditah van der Meulen, Joeri van Dongen, Erik van Woudenberg and a laptop, has recently recorded it’s debut album that sounds as if their lives depended on it. The ‘authorized noise’ of Electric AlleyCat is best described as, in their own words: “a bunch of guitars, 5 kilos of synthesizers, a wide range of techno beats and a voice that sounds like the child from Nina Hagen and Kate Bush”. Who wouldn’t want to play that on repeat for three weeks in a row?
After designing a frisky logo for the band a while ago, I had the honor of delivering the complete album cover, inlay and booklet for this new album titled ‘One Size Fits All‘. The result was an AlleyCat-pink, loudly screaming cover that matched not only the style of their soon-expected new website but also the appropriate ‘electro/underground’ mood that follows the image of the band. The inside of the booklet features the lyrics and some small doodles to go along with them. The album is being pressed at the time of writing, so even I am still waiting to see the final result.
You can listen to a few AlleyCat tracks at their MySpace. If you’re familiar with Soulwax, Goldfrapp and the like, be sure to check it out!
