On “Iris,” Finnish twee act Burning Hearts sound less like they’re running with chests aflame than like Meryl Streep in Doubt listening to Belle & Sebastian. The Hearts play a matronly, serious brand of indie pop that nevertheless shimmers and jangles with the best of ’em; of all the songs of their latest, Aboa Sleeping, “Iris” has the biggest twinkle in its eye.
