Tangled, harmonious and overdriven, Exploded View is alt-rock in the present tense. Exploded View follows 2012’s well-received Transmissive EP, offering even greater focus, urgency and infectious melodies from the now-veteran band. Influences include the heady-alt rock of Dinosaur Jr, the shimmering-psych of Swervedriver and the left-field pop of Teenage Fanclub. The Variety Hour has enjoyed rotation on college radio and has performed live with acts including This Blinding Light, Eric Blood, Motopony, Rose Windows, The Little Penguins, Not From Brooklyn, The Dignitaries, Trees and Timber, Levator, Pioneers West and many, many more.
