How Many Trends Can You Spot on This Wavves Cover?

Posted by on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 1:55 PM

Here's a little brain-teaser to while away the remaining minutes before you book it over to Cairo for their afternoon show. How many du jour visuals can you spot on the cover to Nathan Williams/Wavves' forthcoming King of the Beach?

Answers after the jump.

Incidentally, I'm pretty amped for this record. I wasn't the biggest fan of Wavvves, and was pretty turned off by Williams' widely-reported bratty behavior, but damn if it doesn't seem like he got his act together. King of the Beach could be one of 2010's big surprises—something I intend to delve into more substantively in the future—and the inherent hype-verse critique of the record's title amuses me to no end.

Let's see here:
-Triangle/Pyramid (extra points for the paranoid, Freemason allusion via the "Eye of Providence")
-Wolf (I think? right?)
-Palm Trees (soooo chillwave)
-Tribalism
-Day-glo color scheme

Anything else I could be overlooking?

I see that as a cat. Those are probably of the moment too, though.

And general ugliness for ugliness' sake seems to be what all the kids are doing these days.
