Architectu​re in Helsinki Release Video for “Escapee”, US Tour Stars

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2011 by E.N.

Architecture in Helsinki have released the video for “Escapee,” the third single from their new album Moment Bends (V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records). Like their last two singles, “That Beep” and “Contact High,” the track is an infectious and danceable slice of indie pop perfection. The song’s wistful, nostalgic, feel is echoed by the video – which features a young protagonist breaking out from the confines of suburban life. Architecture in Helsinki kick off their US tour next week at the Henry Fonda Theater on June 1st.

Click HERE for the Video of Architecture in Helsinki’s Original Version

Masters of modernist pop Architecture in Helsinki release their new album Moment Bends today on V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records.  To celebrate the occasion the band is sharing a remix of their single “Contact High” by Brooklyn duo Javelin.  Click HERE to stream/download this lush, shimmering take on the song.  Click HERE to watch the video for the original version of “Contact High,” which Paste Magazine calls “summer’s first mixtape must” and Prefix Mag calls “absurdly catchy.”  Don’t miss the band as they kick off their US tour next month!
 
In large parts, Moment Bends is in dialogue with the dance floor, without being a slave to any particular rhythm.  Like the best pop albums it bubbles with an immediacy while revealing new layers after repeated listens.  It also showcases the band’s most concise and sophisticated songwriting yet.  Recorded over a two year period in the their studio space, Buckingham Palace, songwriter Cameron Bird says: “Moment Bends was all about being at one with our ideas, obsessed with popular music and falling in love with our hometown.  We wanted to build a record to get lost in.  A record that always feels exactly what you are feeling”.

Architecture in Helsinki New Album, Moment Bends, on May 3rd

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on February 1, 2011 by E.N.

Architecture in Helsinki to Release Moment Bends 

May 3rd on Cooperative Music USA/

Downtown Records

US Tour Kicks Off in June

You may not have expected it, but the first great modernist pop album of 2011 is here… Four years on from their last album, Architecture In Helsinki return with the hook-laden, magnetic and lush Moment Bends (out May 3rd on Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records). It sounds like the record they’ve waited their whole lives to make, retaining the fizzing immediacy of its three predecessors and re-molding with a more sophisticated touch.
 
In large parts, Moment Bends is in dialogue with the dance floor, without being a slave to any particular rhythm. So, imagine a sound equal parts Italia ‘82, California ‘79, and Melbourne 2011, glued together with a dynamic bounce and a compelling romanticism.
 
Recorded over a 2 year period in the band’s studio space, Buckingham Palace, Songwriter Cameron Bird says: “Moment Bends was all about being at one with our ideas, obsessed with popular music and falling in love with our hometown. We wanted to build a record to get lost in. A record that always feels exactly what you are feeling”.
 
The band enlisted long-time friend and collaborator Francois Tetaz to guide them through the record making process, in a “Spiritual healing / co-production / mixing role”. The result speaks for itself. With it’s effortless mix of the ambiguous and the familiar, not to mention it’s 11 killer songs, Moment Bends might just be your new favorite record. Architecture In Helsinki will be touring Europe, Australia,  and North America – with US dates scheduled for June.
