3hive fan and former student of mine Max says these guys are “the new hotness.” (He had terrible punctuation and capitalization in his e-mail message touting the band, so maybe that B+ I gave him in Composition was a bit of a gift, eh?) “Australia’s indie-pop chamber orchestra,” according to Bar None, offers up a great windows-down, warm-weather treat here, a version of their track “Do the Whirlwind” remixed by the UK’s Metronomy. Check the band’s website for a video of the original version of the song and assorted other treats.

I agree. This band is incredible. But then again I am partial to bands who randomly throw clarinet lines into the middle of their songs.. and Architecture in Helsinki tends to do this often.
I love AIH, and I'm so glad to see you guys mention them!
"Maybe You Can Owe Me" is the best.
AIH are zanycrazysexycool. Lot's of fun stuff on their newest album — "It's 5," "The Cemetary," and more. Eat this stuff up!
Oh yeah, great stuff right here. I have both of their albums and they are simply fantastic. One of my favorite bands.
Realy Good! My compliments! I want more!
"What's In Store" is my favorite track. I love the way it starts slow and then winds up and then whoo! I'm dancing in my car.
They're like Australia's Arcade Fire. And that's a good thing.
An utterly great discovery AIH was. The track "Do the whirlwind" has been frequently played since yesterday, and this morning, it's giving me a lovely rush and making me smile to myself.
