Clara Obscura is The Relationship's sophomore album.


Clara Obscura was released on April 18, 2017. Aside from frontman Brian Bell, only two band members were credited on Obscura who had also contributed to the band's self-titled debut: Jon LaRue and Luther Russell. Eric J., a longtime collaborator of Bell's who produced the band's first record, is notably absent.

Nic Jodoin produced the record, recording the band at his own Valentine Recording Studios [1][2].

The band undertook a more intentional marketing effort for this record than they had with the previous one, releasing a music video for "Break Me Open."
