Listen: Architecture In Helsinki ‘In The Future’

Architecture In Helsinki’s first new material since 2011 is another candy-coloured gem. ‘In the Future’ picks up from the thriving dance-pop ecosystem of their On Rotation fourth album Moment Bends, stoking ’80s radio euphoria with neon hooks and canned-sounding party flourishes.

The three-minute single comes ahead of the Melbourne indie pop veterans’ slot at Splendour in the Grass, along with a pair of warm-up gigs just announced: one in Ballarat and the other at their hometown’s intimate Toff in Town.

Continuing with the last record’s self-described “modernist pop,” ‘In the Future’ hinges on the softly raspy lead vocals of Cameron Bird and follows in the shape-shifting yet disciplined tradition of ‘Contact High’. Like Moment Bends, it was co-produced with François Tetaz, with additional production by Haima Marriott. The track features trombone, trumpet, violin and cello, plus viola from Biddy Connor.

It’s available from iTunes and the band now.

Fri, July 19 – Karova Lounge, Ballarat, VIC
Wed, July 24 – The Toff in Town, Melbourne, VIC

Clearly only three people care. See you in the mosh pit, kidz.

I had a weird peanut-butter-fuelled dream last night in which I opine to a former band member the ways in which this is not good, and in which former band member defends it. Apropos of nothing.

They need to change stylists.
