When was the last time that you tried to listen to an unpopular music? Filled your iPod with songs that are not in the Top Hits Charts? Never… No? Then you are a poor slave of media, you eat whatever they serve. But then, I’m not judging…. I’m just trying to make an introduction.
City Calm Down, Scissor Paper Rock, The Owls Go and It’ 5! are just few indie songs from “Architecture in Helsinki” that you might never had heard because of your slavery from Pop and RnB. Here below is a short description of the band from wiki.
Architecture in Helsinki are an Indie Pop Australian band based in the inner Melbourne suburb of Northcote. The group consists of Cameron Bird, Gus Franklin, Jamie Mildren, Sam Perry, and Kellie Sutherland.
Most of the band members can play multiple instruments. Their music makes use of a wide range of instruments, from analog synthesizers, samplers, the glockenspiel and handclaps; to concert band instruments like the trumpet, tuba, trombone, saxophone, clarinet and recorder; and the more standard guitars, bass guitar and drums.
Their albums covers are also made different.
I can’t describe their kind music by words. I suggest to watch the videos below.
