4.0 out of 5 stars Summer Songs From Down Under, 31 May 2011

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Moment Bends (Audio CD)
Architecture In Helsinki do not come from Finland. They
are an Australian ensemble who are described as having
"cult" status in their homeland. This, despite it being
their fourth album, is my first encounter with the band
and the experience has been an entirely pleasant one.

The prevailing mood of 'Moment Bends' is, on the whole,
upbeat and light of spirit. Essentially what we hear here
(here here!) is sparkling electronic pop; all catchy tunes,
bouncy beats and pretty vocals. 'W.O.W.' is a wonderful
example of the band's capacity to take a simple melodic
idea and run with it. The harmonies are delightful; the
pulsing rhythm addictive.

Other highlights would have to include : jolly singalong
track 'Desert Island', which brought early Erasure to mind
for more than a moment; the bouncy, bumptious and very
danceable 'That Beep', which nods and winks blissfully back
to its 80's forebears and the strangely soulful stripped-down
beauty of final track 'B4 3D' (the album's loveliest invention).

Another recording to add to a sun-filled soundtrack for Summer 2011.

Recommended.

First time I have heard their work and purchased the CD of the back of listening to one of their tracks online. Not disappointed, love the album, a great mix and a welcome addition to the collection.
