Artwork for 'Ribs' by Nately's Whore's Kid Sister


I was invited to design the artwork for the cover of the band's EP Ribs...

Nately's Whore's Kid Sister are a band set out to develop the audio and visual aesthetics of contemporary popular music. Formed in 2010, the Newcastle based five-piece comprise of members from the acclaimed Grandfather Birds and [now defunct] Flowers of Evil, with the intention of making loud, stimulating, and creative audio.

Given the individual histories of each member, and their previous involvement within the capitalist mainstream of modern music, Nately's is a natural response to the false pressures, and the malaise endemic with today's music industry. Where convention no longer cuts, Nately's focus intently on invention.

The strong band character can be seen distinctly in their live performances. Building a set around impact, the band include both strong visual content (in the form of costume, presence and projections), and stimulating sonic textures, sampled from day to day life. This is all interspersed within their staple of bold riffs and haunting vocals.

The band are currently looking to take their recorded music and live shows across Europe.

If you get the chance to see this band, do. Their outlandish stage performance and dark beats leave one feeling equally fascinated and traumatised.
