Exploded View, the international music project of Annika Henderson, Hugo Quezada, and Martin Thulin has returned and taken flight with their second full-length, Obey. The LP was recorded at Hugo's and Martin's studios in Mexico City with Annika visiting from Berlin. Leaving behind their raw, live recording process, and embracing overdubs and multi-instrumentalism, the band has crafted their most ambitious work to date. The 4-piece that recorded the band's self-titled debut and Summer Came Early EP became a trio to create a more concise collection of songs.

When asked about the title of the record, singer Annika said "this is in reference to so many things. We live in a society where we must obey or risk punishment. This can be social punishment, legal punishment, emotional punishment - if you dare to step outside, you will reap the reward. We live in a time when we are self-certifying a lot. Whether it's how we present ourselves on social media or our diet or our job - we obey the social norms. Our fears are used against us by advertisers. Our fears of growing old or being excluded - we must conform or pay the high price - buy this and you will be accepted. We must obey. It's also funny because in the band we often feel like we are all compromising, so we must all obey each other's wishes to some extent too."

Striking the balance between precise and wild, between unshackled and grounded, grooving and unhinged, has always been Exploded View's specialty. They have a special knack for making the esoteric feel accessible and crafting pop music out of seemingly raw consciousness. This unique ability to make beautiful music that feels written beyond the veil is at the heart of what makes the band so captivating and powerful, and it's on full display all over Obey.
