Evolving from a scrappy, lo-fi side project into a silky, rich electro-pop quintet, Metronomy return with new album ‘Metronomy Forever’.
Their influences of Devo, Bowie and Pavement lay heavy in their new work, due to be released in September, as leading tracks ooze with gooey beats, harmonious electro pop and addictive indie guitar and drum hooks. The group, which started in Devon in 1999, came to fame with ‘The Look’ – a twinkly synth led track that paved the way for mid 2000’s indie. Their newest offerings including ‘Salted Caramel Ice Cream’ elevate those simple synths into luxurious melodies that are laid down smooth, sickly sweet just like caramel.
