These designs show that 80s inspired album art hasn’t been so conspicuous since the 80s.

Indie music is so multifarious there’s rarely a recent genre that can hold the audience’s attention for more than a song. There are some influences, though, that have a greater hold than others. Considering the age of most artists and musicians right now, 80s art album covers are no surprise. Also, the multi-colored, rainbow style of the era is fun—and indie music can be so melancholy it’s good to inject a little happiness.
