Architecture in Helsinki releases video for “Contact High”


Since “Contact High” hit the internet music world a couple weeks ago, writers and audiences alike can’t get enough of it. Architecture in Helsinki created an insanely catchy single that gets stuck to your brain like fresh gum on a shoe. The band released an equally insane music video Friday on Pitchfork that’s also bound to get more than one play. The “Contact High” video has dissevered limbs flying about with trippy visuals, all with an oddly erotic undertone to accompany the song. It’s like an Australian Videodrome without Debbie Harry’s mouth TV eating people. Check out the video for the single below:
