Pilomotor is a Swiss indie pop band, who in 2003 were nominated as the “DRS 3 Best Talent” (today’s SRF 3). Three albums in five years and innumerable live concerts are testimony to Pilomotor’s creative drive. Nor can the band complain about a lack of airplay: hardly any radio station in Switzerland has failed to succumb to their charms.
The second album, Fragments, combines various different vintage photo-cards, a booklet, and the CD in an exclusive, hot-foil embossed box. The “fragments” in the album title are mirrored in the visual design in the photo-cards, which trigger flash-light-like memories of other times. The topic of remnants is also echoed in the typographical design of the song texts and the shimmering patterns, made up of triangles.
