Art of the Cover - Bombay Bicycle Club's "Flaws" (2010)

A real nice piece of artwork adorns the sophomore studio album from the Nottingham lads.

The cover was designed by the band's bassist, Ed Nash.

Flaws was released in July 2010 and debuted on the UK Albums Chart at number 8.

The album included 11 acoustically recorded tracks, including "Swansea"; a cover of the Joanna Newsom song that appears on her album The Milk-Eyed Mender and "Fairytale Lullaby"; a cover of the John Martyn song that appears on the album London Conversation

In December, the album was certified Silver by the British Phonographic Industry for selling over 60,000 copies. 

"Flaws" was been nominated for the 2011 Ivor Novello Award for best album.
