entur the haters: Architecture in Helsinki

See an album pick it up

A good debut album can be luck. A good follow up can be coincidence. Aussie oddball popsters Architecture in Helsinki will be releasing their third album, Places Like This, in August. The most difficult task for these kangeroo loving dundees will be to impress the massive die-hard followers of their last album, In Cae We Die. The softness of their last album has been replaced with B-52 sounding giddy pop that sounds oddly similar to Helsinki touring partner and "Heart it Races" remixer, Yacht. Places Like This goes in a new direction, emphasizing synthesizers, tribal chanting, and driving rhythms. Fans of their quirky shouting and envelope-pushing hooks will hopefully be more than satisfied with Places Like This. Like all Architecture in Helsinki albums, Places Like This grows on you, getting better with every listen.
