It might not even about our fair city, but postpunk supergroup Exploded View has released a gorgeous new song from their upcoming LP called "Orlando."

Exploded View – led by gothy chanteuse Anika with able assistance from Mexico-based producers/musicians Martin Thulin, Hugo Quezada and Amon Melgarejo – will soon be releasing their debut via Sacred Bones.

The song itself is an unusually upbeat song compared to Anika's past work, buoyed along by huge galloping drums and bass, accented by little crystal shards of guitar. Drink it in and feel civic pride by default.
