Architecture in Helsinki advertising trains

Hattip to ‘wxtre’ over on Daniel Bowen’s blog for this catch – Architecture in Helsinki providing the backing track to an advertisement for the new ‘Silver Line’ of the Washington Metro.

The new railway opened on 24 June 2014, while the song itself is ‘Escapee’ from Architecture in Helsinki’s 2011 album ‘Moment Bends‘.

Note that in the advertisement the song has been chopped around to suit the commercial – given I know it off by heart, it really messes with my ears to hear it in the wrong order!
