Architecture In Helsinki
Heart It Races
Architecture In Helsinki release their new single Heart It Races on July 23rd 2007.
Heart It Races is laced with steel drums and builds through infectious pitter-pat beats, layered "na na na na na" vocals to hands-in-the-air dancefloor breakdowns and swooshy, glittering rushes. With a vividly colourful video shot in Mexico by director Kris Moyes, this has summer dance party anthem stamped all over it.
We rejoin six piece outfit of musical chameleons Architecture in Helsinki, formed in Melbourne but now scattered across the globe, as they hit the ground running with their third album, Places Like This. It could not be more removed from their previous album, In Case We Die (2005). Fizzing with electrical currents, channeling calypso rhythms and tropicalia flavours with lashings of percussion a-go-go, the new songs pack a kaleidoscopic punch that is little short of breathtaking. Pop effervescence hasn't sounded this fresh in ages.
Architecture in Helsinki is: Cameron Bird, James Cecil, Gus Franklin, Jamie Mildren, Sam Perry & Kellie Sutherland. Who randomly play - Bass, Drums, Congas, Percussion, Synthesizers, Trombone, Guitars and Samples.
The season 7 premiere guests featured some cast members we haven't seen much of for a while.
This year's Rotterdam event was definitely one to remember.
