Exploded View @ Rotondes, 24 August 2016

Exploded View is a new collaborative project helmed by the UK-born, Berlin-based political- journalist-turned-musician Anika (Invada Records / Stones Throw). The project is newly signed to Sacred Bones Records, who will release a single in March and a full-length later this year. After playing a string of 2014 solo shows in Mexico with a backing lineup composed of local producers Martin Thulin (Crocodiles producer) synth-head Hugo Quezada (Robota) and Riotboy sweetheart Hector Melgarejo (Jessy Bulbo / Nos llamamos), Anika and her new bandmates discovered a chemistry that they simply had to capture on tape. Exploded View emphasizes the talents of Anika and her collaborators in a new way, one that cuts through its improvisational roots with laser-focus and intent.
