The band finally let go of its precious, first born, Fingers Crossed, after nearly two years of work, shifting personnel and studios galore in 2004. Architecture in Helsinki is an eight-piece combo from Melbourne, Australia (not Finland) that makes ingenious chamber rock for the laptop age, combining guitar-bass-drums with horns, strings, male and female vocals, lots of handclaps, samples and subtle electronics.

"Architecture in Helsinki's debut, Fingers Crossed manages to take "neo-psych" to entirely unforeseen levels of blippy eccentricity. Melding lilting harmonies, sweet, high-pitched synthesizers, tittering percussion, and assorted woodwinds, Architecture lay out a weird and whimsical electro-pop buffet, effortless yet perplexing. Credit the band's songwriting prowess: "The Owl's Go" is Fingers Crossed's brilliant creative apex, an insane and addictive menagerie of sounds, melodies, and gleeful circus bits; other notable moments: "Fumble" is a goofy-but-engaging tuba-heavy celebration, and "Like a Call", with its muted beats and meandering bassline, is an inadvertently touching promise." “ Amanda Petrusich
