Metronomy scored their first Top 10 UK album in 2014 with the critically-acclaimed Love Letters. Entirely written, played and produced by Joe Mount, Metronomy will release new album Summer 08 on July 1st on Because Music.
The album’s first single ‘Old Skool‘ is a cowbell-clattered cocaine pop belter that glimpses ’00s London from the backseat of an Addison Lee. It descends into a chaotic scratch frenzy courtesy of Beastie Boys‘ turntablist and Mount‘s childhood hero Mix Master Mike. The accompanying video directed by Dawn Shadforth features Catastrophe‘s Sharon Horgan and Game of Thrones‘ Ben Crompton in an explosion of ’70s aesthetic hedonism inspired in part by Mike Leigh’s ‘Abigail’s Party’.
