Like it or Not seems an apt title for the latest offering from Architecture in Helsinki, a band that proved with its last release, Places Like This, that any direction is possible and the band will choose any path it pleases in terms of its musical evolution.
So, for this EP, Cameron Bird and Co have delved even deeper into the realm of eccentric indie-pop with some remixes of tracks from Places, as well as a couple of new cuts. Barcelona-based producer El Guincho and Max Tundra lent their skills on the mixing board, and the title track is an inside out version of the original track that ran on Places.
The Melbourne-based band is said to be working on another full-length for the rest of the year. In the meantime, pick this up on Polyvinyl.
