Creative Director Konstantinos Miaris / Konsept83 Design Studio makes trippy images like an ice-cream with planet-balls, a strange bird cta in a plastic jewel case with a half-cut booklet.
This album of the indie-pop artist Leon of Athens documents the journey of a weary traveler who has been traveling through time, floating in and out of forever. The lyrics tell the inner monologue as the traveler muses about the thousands of years he has been floating in this existence, wistful and slightly bitter about not being able to find a resting place, which is the one thing he longs for more than anything.
For the occasion of the release Yorgos Lanthimos (director of the oscar-nominated Dogtooth) directed an allegorical short film based on Baby Asteroid song which is included in the album.
Global was produced by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle and Sebastian) at Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Road Studios.
