Features One Question Interviews Sarin

One Question Interviews: Sarin

David Wilson (Sarin - guitar/vocals)

SPB: How likely are you to pick up a record based off its cover with no knowledge of the band or music?

David: I generally treat cover art as indicative of what's inside, as presumably that's the imagery the band wants me to associate with their music. It's not unusual for me to buy an LP based on artwork alone, though price will dictate how much of a chance I'm willing to take on it. In a digital era especially, a good thumbnail will be your first (and often only) incentive to click "play." I'm one of those weirdos who likes to stare at the cover/spool through the art while listening to an album as well.

So to answer your question: Likely. Most of the time.
