Architecture in Helsinki – Contact High

architectureinhelsinki 500x419 Architecture in Helsinki   Contact High

Here’s Architecture in Helsinki’s first single in four years. Simple, upbeat, full of falsetto, and danceable. Going from Tyler the Creator’s chopped and screwed “Yonkers” to this is really confusing, but suddenly, everything seems much brighter, like I should go outside, skip down the street, and high-five strangers. But I will not do that, because I do not like to acknowledge strangers. Thanks to PMA.

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.

The band’s Moment Bends will be out May 3rd.
