Architecture In Helsinki Moment Bends

Melbourne’s Architecture In Helsinki are back with the followup to 2007′s Places Like This. Moment Bends was recorded in the band’s studio space, Buckingham Palace, and is, according to the press release, “… glued together with a dynamic bounce and a compelling romanticism.” The first sample from the Moment Bends, the simple and effective “Contact High,” has the “dynamic bounce” part down, with rubbery analog synths and a little bit of drums framing Cameron Bird’s falsetto. Listen:

  1. AIH Bandmember: “Hey guys, I got an idea, let’s abandon all our various instruments that made our album “In Case we Die” so great (and get Best New Music on P4K) and just do straight electro-pop. That worked for Islands too, right? right?”

    Sigh.

  2. always good to see some aussie stuff on here…these guys have done better though I believe. also ‘that beep’ has been floating around for a while too, assuming its the same song – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmieVoMeqZM
