Architecture in Helsinki ticket giveaway

By | November 10th, 2011 | 19 Comments

Architecture in Helsinki, an indie pop quintet from Down Under, is a modern-day B-52s with lead singer Cameron Bird channeling Fred Schneider with every hiccup and squeal. The band’s fourth album, Moment Bends, released in April, altered AIH’s musical path by incorporating a heavy dose of 1980s radio pop. The shift from quirky, energetic rock to synth-heavy, soft pop irked a few critics and fans, but Moment Bends, the band’s first release in four years, works as a commendable change-of-pace record.

Currently touring behind the album, Architecture in Helsinki will play Grand Central on Friday night with Dom, a Bostonland outfit whose latest EP, Family of Love, was produced by Nicolas Vernhes (Animal Collective, Bj√∂rk). To enter to win two tickets to the show, simply leave a comment on this post. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on the Beached Miami Facebook page on Friday morning. Until then, here’s “Hold Music” off of AIH’s 2007 album, Places Like This. If you’ve got a trampoline tucked under the bed, you might want to go get it.
