Mixed Tapes: Architecture in Helsinki

In Mixed Tapes on 02/28/2009 at 6:59 PM


Amid all the so called indie bands, Australian pop group Architecture in Helsinki is a breath of fresh air.Originally comprised of three childhood friends Cameron Bird, Jamie Mildren and Sam Perry, the band has morphed through as many as six different line-ups. Their music can be classified as Indie pop, although their style is not defining of their sound. The use of unexpected instruments and synths makes for an eclectic and unusual sound.

Reminiscent of  1970’s style, round framed sunglasses are my obsession du jour. The Annie Hall look is not defining of these weirdly shaped specs, Sonia Rykiel featured a similar more updated style on her fall 08 RTW collection. Whether you feel like Harry Potter or just weird wearing them, at least you are not still wearing wayfarers .
