Architecture - New Music "Introducing"

Architecture is the Chicago duo of Melissa Harris and Rebecca Scott, they came to my attention through their newly released 7" - available on three different colour waxes via Notes and Bolts records and can be ordered via Bandcamp.

The swirling analogue pop of "Diamond Mind" leads the single and it's likely to quickly embed itself in your brain with an intoxicate blend of crunching beats, moody synth and slow-gazing melody, the dreamy pared vocal harmonies take the track to another level though, nothing short of gorgeous.

Flip side "BB Beware" is different but works just as well, with a strong, striking drum beat that commands your attention around repetitive keys which slowly build in intensity around the hypnotic, rhythmic core and half spoken vocals which blossom around the softer choruses, the ending crescendo where the drums and keys reach climax is nothing short of breathtaking. Anyway, don't take my word for it, stream both tracks below and if you like it, then perhaps buy it...
