Architecture: When We Were Young (EP)

Eyes and ears have reopened as we finally have the chance to breathe life back into this, our favourite little spot for music. In making a belated return to MML, we've found an appropriate track that just so happens to belong to an amazing EP release from earlier this year. Architecture is the Chicago, Illinois based duo of Rebecca Scott (vocals, guitar, etc.) and Melissa Harris (vocals, keyboards, glockenspiel, etc.) who were first mentioned here almost exactly one year ago, in August 2010. The debut EP, titled When We Were Young, delves gently into a near chamber-music mood from the very beginning, with understated instrumentation and the perfect spark of electronic beat that leaves us scurrying to adjust our year-end "best of" list straight away. Have a listen.

For those who have not experienced Rebecca Scott's other electro-shoegaze music project, Panda Riot, please do yourselves a favor and check previous MML reviews from 2006, 2007 and 2010. Also, if you are close enough to Cincinnati, Ohio, Architecture will perform live at local downtown venue Mainstay on August 13. Buy us a cocktail when you get there. Thanks, pals.
