Architecture in Helsinki

Indie-pop ensemble Architecture in Helsinki recorded their newest album, Moment Bends, in Buckingham Palace ... sort of. Specifically, the 11-song LP was recorded in a rented studio in Melbourne, Australia (where the band originates) with a photo mural of Lindsey Buckingham overseeing the creative process from the wall. The troupe coined the studio "Buckingham Palace" and spent two years recording Moment Bends, released April 8. Consisting of multi-instrumentalists Cameron Bird, Gus Franklin, Jamie Mildren, Sam Perry and Kellie Sutherlan, the group—which has toured with the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and Dr. Dog—utilizes various instruments in its experimental, avant-garde style, incorporating clarinets, trumpets, tubas and glockenspiels into a trippy, dance-like explosion of upbeat pop. With Hooray For Earth. JOE WILLIAMS
