Architecture in Helsinki
Australian indie-pop collective Architecture in Helsinki already got stuck in our head with their album Moment Bends, released earlier this year, and now, they're taking their dance-infused '80s pop across the United States. Songwriter Cameron Bird says he was "obsessed" with popular music while writing the album and created a "record to get lost in. A record that always feels exactly what you are feeling."

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
