Architecture in Helsinki are on the road again, this time with danceable pop music creators, DOM. Earlier this year, the band released their magnetic (yes it was magnetic), hook-laden album Moment Beds via V2/Cooperative Music/Downtown Records. Recorded over a two-year period, Moment Beds sounds like the record they’ve waited their whole lives to make, retaining the fizzing immediacy of its three predecessors and re-molding with a more sophisticated touch. I’m so looking forward to this tour—November 2nd, my calendar is marked. Actually I don’t even need to mark shit, the tour kicks off in Los Angeles at The El Rey Theatre, which just happens to be at the end of my block. How sweet is that.

Moment Bends was all about being at one with our ideas, obsessed with popular music and falling in love with our hometown. We wanted to build a record to get lost in. A record that always feels exactly what you are feeling. -Cameron Bird

To get you ready for the tour…give this sexually charged, surreal video for the supremely catchy “Contact High” a play.

And here a video for "Escapee"

"Contact High" Lyrics:

If one of these two walls could speak
Id turn the lights down long enough to hit repeat
Right now my vision is gone and magics to blame
Its silent down here, hey I want to get loud again
Youll hold the thunder while I bring the rain

I might be busy doing nothing but Ive had my share
Youve got a strange infatuation with the love thats in the air

Contact high
Im done dreamin that we can fly
Am I guilty? Boy you decide
Ive got nothing to hide

Four letter words wont hold any sway (uh uh)
And in a paradise that shakes the word romantic to the bone
Mystical forces are circling me, while perfect nostalgia is dating the enemy
Lost in the ether with no one to blame
Its silent down here, maybe I want to get loud again

Contact high
Im done dreamin that we can fly
Am I guilty? Boy you decide
Ive got nothing to hide

(When we touch I get a)
Contact high
Im done leaving if we can try
Am I guilty? Boy you decide
Ive got nothing to hide

I might be dancing doing nothing but Ive had my share
Youve got a strange infatuation with the elements in the air

Contact high
Im done dreaming that we can fly
Am I guilty boy u decide
Ive got nothing to hide
(When we touch I get a)
Contact high...contact high...contact high
