Now, take a look at this cover. What do you think this sounds like? Something sauve. Something smooth. Something European.
This cover should not be on a rockin' single. Look at that logo for the band. Look at the girl with short hair and a fluffy sweater. This is a Swedish-pop wannabe band, not 4/4 indie rock.
But it is. Straight-ahead, crunchy guitar, indie rock. Pretty catchy. Upbeat. All the things I would look for if the cover was a xeroxed picture of, oh I don't know, a rusty Peterbilt logo on a truck.
I know I should look beyond cover art. This is an auditory medium. Cover art means nothing.
Except when you get it wrong
