Originally thought to be named Vision Revision, the fourth proper album from Architecture In Helsinki is now called Moment Bends. And, rather than throw out a random future date, the Australian band is ready to drop the record in May, almost four years after the release of Places Like This. Moment Bends is said to blend the immediacy of the band’s first three records, which were hailed for their caffeinated pop tunes, with a sense of sophistication. What that probably means is some more reflection and slower tempos, though we will have to wait for the first few singles to hear if that holds true.
Moment Bends is due out May 3 on Cooperative/Downtown Records.
