Artist: Glitz in the Sys­tem Al­bum: “The Bizarre Mys­ter­ies of Gar­den Odyssey” Genre: Psy­che­delic Rock First track: Fresh Phases Tell us about the fic­tional artist. They’re a band com­posed of Nor­we­gians in their early twen­ties with a fe­male vo­cal­ist.

How did you de­cide on the al­bum cover?

MJ: I de­cided on psy­che­delic rock more for its aes­thetic than per­sonal mu­sic pref­er­ences. I wanted to de­vi­ate from the pared down looks I usu­ally fa­vor, so I im­me­di­ately thought of the trippy, print-over­dose al­bums of the ’60s and ’70s. Of course when color and quirk is in­volved, hav­ing Ev­ery­where We Shoot as my col­lab­o­ra­tors seemed only nat­u­ral. What inspired the shoot? Some old al­bum cov­ers (among them “Are You Ex­pe­ri­enced” by The Jimi Hen­drix Ex­pe­ri­ence, “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” by Pink Floyd, and “Sgt. Pep­per’s Lonely Heart Club Band” by The Bea­tles), Mary Ka­trant­zou’s digi-prints, stick­ers, and the elec­tric blue cat eye at Honor’s spring show.

How about the pro­duc­tion de­sign?

MJ: That was left un­planned un­til the day of the shoot, when EWS sim­ply took a quick tour of my home, scrounged up dé­cor we could use, and im­pro­vised a set. I never re­al­ized how much fake ow­ers and fruits we have around the house

What’s your favourite al­bum of all time?

MJ: It’s a toss be­tween “Rub­ber Soul” by The Bea­tles and “Is This It” by The Strokes.

EWS: “Thriller” (1982) by Michael Jack­son.

The song that’s most of­ten on loop on your playlist?

MJ: Thirty Three by The Smash­ing Pump­kins. No spe­cial rea­son, re­ally -it’s the rst song on my Spo­tify playlist.

EWS: Diego Castillo’s The Lazy Sun­day playlist on Spo­tify.
