Build a Vista is a psychedelic rock band formed in Mexico City in 2015 amongst a growing local scene of like-sounding musicians. The band is composed of lifelong friends Pablo Olea, Carlos Mier, Diego Mier and Julian Bayod. Build a Vista found its sound and style in the rehearsal room and was later curated and crafted within the recording studio.
Their live show does not fail to intrigue, as instruments and lead vocals are rotated between the band members, creating an ever-evolving atmosphere. Their self-titled debut album was released in September of 2017, produced, recorded and mixed by the band itself in Mexico City’s La Vista Studios.
Their distinct mix of seventies rock with modern elements results in music that enhances tradition by transforming it rather than destroying it.
On October 6th, the band shared the stage with acts such as King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Boogarins, Allah-Las, San Pedro El Cortes amongst others in the Hipnosis Music Festival which took place in Mexico City.
Build a Vista is currently working on their second full-length album which will be released in 2021. The record has a total of 13 songs. The music was composed during the Taxco Exile, a time the band took away from the city to retire to devote themselves to creativity. That exile happened in three different occasions between the years 2019 and 2020. Build a Vista opened the stage for the acclaimed international acts StereoLab and Kikagaku Moyo in the Hipnosis Showcase 2019. In 2020 the band performed at the series Hipnosis at Home. On October 16th 2020, the band re-released independently the track "Tu Voz", originally released under Burger Records Latam 4th compilation album.

"The band that founds itself in a gap in the music scene of [México], through a very distinct speech and manages to stand out."
"Mexico’s Build a Vista manages to make psych that feels both expansive and trippy, as well as whispery and intimate. It balances big rock exposition with pop melodies, hypnotic bass lines, and guitars that snake around and explode in fuzz-heavy chords. It makes being close to the edge seem like something soothing and triumphant."
"Build a Vista might be considered a very young act, but that has not stop them from positioning themselves as one of the most important bands in the scene. "
“Build a Vista has an old-school aesthetic to its music which does not fear distortion nor high decibels. Their music takes us through a classic road, almost western-like at moments with a touch of sweet melancholy, almost vintage. “
