    Second Guessing’s new EP Tijd Verdringt – a single sided 12" record with screen print on the B-side – covers themes such as loss of a loved one, mental instabillity and recovery, written and recorded through a very witheld and internal lens. Metaphorically rich, Tijd Verdringt references themes such as Dutch architecture, the functions of the human body and more, to articulate the negatives and positives of personal experiences/struggles that are otherwise difficult to express.

    I chose both typefaces to show contrast between modern and old, big and small, and rough and straight – using IM Fell DW Pica for the band name and DIN 1451 Medium and Light for the other text. Keeping this type of contrast works well with the rough and angular collage work and the contrasting theme’s of the EP.
