Thunder is 80s Graphic Design Awesomeness

In this time of sorrow and stress there’s nothing better than a boost of pure 80s graphic design inspiration. A lightning of energy directed straight to our hearts to lift us up. Perhaps even get me out of my lazy state and make me open Photoshop and try to recreate that effect. I am talking about the artwork that João Marques designed and shared  for "Thunder", a long-awaited track from KURA released for free on July 2019. 

The artwork was heavily inspired by old rock and metal vinyl sleeves due to the song's sampling of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck". - Joao Marques
