In this rehashed age of flouro and 80s graphics, I was instantly in love with the simplicity of Emily Haines’ Knives Don’t Have Your Back artwork in neutrals with its nice typography. Outside of her burgeoning art career, Emily Haines is the lead singer of indie band Metric. She admits that she was a little nervous about her solo venture, the albums being a lot more personal than the tough Metric persona. There’s nothing to worry about though, it may be personal, but it’s also really beautiful.
