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.
