Band website designed from artists' concepts and built as a fully responsive, mobile-friendly platform. Eschewing typical music-related page designs, navigation of the site purposefully encourages exploration and discovery in the vein of anonymity under which the band operates, inviting visitors to learn from their bio, news and their artistic influences. Features such as hidden Easter eggs, interactive elements and other surprises help to showcase their music and other creative projects.
