Artist: Architecture in Helsinki

From an Australian suburb, Architecture in Helsinki (AIH) is one of my top 10 favorite indie bands. I've been a fan since 2003, which is a long time especially when it comes to music. They've released a number of albums, and with each record, they've experimented with a new styles and sounds. You can count on AIH for something fun and fresh.
Their sound is very playful, catchy, yet quirky. My favorite AIH song is "Do The Whirlwind" from In Case We Die, but that may change later this month when they release "That Beep". You can stream the new single and download a Radioclit remix at thatbeep.com.
Below is a video for "Hold Music", one of my favorite tracks off their last album Places Like This. Should help cure those Monday blues!
