After a knockout show at XOYO, ARCHITECTURE IN HELSINKI play London’s Heaven club.
“That Beep” is the Eurovision Song Contest winner that Architecture in Helsinki can never have.
It’s got the patented AIH dose of elation with healthy lashings of WTF?, a synth-break to rival the World Cup Soccer theme and Kellie Sutherland’s effortlessly sly and sexy pop vocal, set to swirl around your head for days: “Dressed up as bubble gum / I’m stuck to your shoe / Let’s run.”
“That Beep” is the first taste of Architecture in Helsinki’s post-Places Like This trajectory. 2007’s groundbreaking, ground-shifting crossover album Places Like This presented countless threads the band could follow. Their fans have come to expect the unexpected, and so have the band themselves.
Places Like This took the band from much-loved indie contenders to chart-climbing world conquerors. At just over half an hour, it’s Architecture in Helsinki’s shortest album, but despite its brevity, it’s their densest, most idea-packed recording. The album’s mind boggling scope encompasses the steel drum-laden, dance floor inducement of “Heart It Races”, the frantic stutter-funk of “Debbie”, the spastic sexbeat of “Hold Music” and a million other flavours of fun.
