Whit (Fallow Land)
SPB: How do you choose your album art?
Whit: Fallow Land chose the album cover of Pinscher to mirror the overall attitude I had when writing it. My friend Andrea Calvetti is a fantastic photographer and videographer. I saw a photograph of his dog he had taken and posted on Facebook and I knew it had to be the cover of our EP. One of dog’s characteristics that I find interesting is that even though they have been domesticated and live in our houses, there is a wild animal living inside all of them. I think the photograph exemplifies this balance. Pinscher was written in an attempt to quell the chaos I felt inside of me. I felt this image was a fitting portrayal of that struggle.
The images in the liner notes were created by Caitlin Boyce. Caitlin has been an essential member of our team. She does almost all of the visual art for the band including show posters, merch design, and some album art. Caitlin is an insanely talented artist and a good friend. Caitlin is responsive to what Fallow Land is trying to do auditorily and has found ways to recreate that aesthetic visually. Her artwork for the EP references our music video for “Faux.” Her images portray how others can influence one’s identity and self-image. In addition to creating the visual art for Fallow Land you can frequently find Caitlin manning the merch booth at our shows. She is a fantastic artist and an awesome person!
