The name of the single, Retrograde speaks for itself, so it wasn't hard to come up with artwork to emulate this astrological phenomenon. In modern western astrology, this symbolism is said to represent within different areas of life involving mental functions, attaining knowledge, communication, and short travels. After the band sent us polaroids they recently shot on vacation, we knew we wanted artwork that was dark and psychedelic with moody color tones to tell their story: Retrograde.
