the new metronomy album, love letters, has a title that speaks volumes about sensations and modes of communication, about things that have always been there, and will always be here. its no coincidence either. this is a record that wants to be timeless. in its execution, love letters tries to do fresh things in an old-fashioned way. it takes richer methods of recording and injects them with the shock of the new of tight electronics, and experiments in sound. it does so not to be retro, but to embrace the quality standards of the past. it also aims to be up there with the greats, reaching for those old stars.
>the bay< is the electro quartets third single from the latest release >the english riviera<, following the release of both >she wants< and >the look<. the third studio release from the electronic stars >the english riviera< was released last april, and has since received a mass of critical acclaim from all corners of the industry. popular websites such as nme gave the latest release a rating of 9/10, with drowned in sound offering the same rating. now, fresh back from their recently sold out uk tour, the band are preparing to release the third single from the critically acclaimed album in >the bay<. defined as being one of the highlights taken from a fantastic album, >the bay< would be well placed as a future summer dancefloor classic.

metronomy are back for 2009 with this perfect slice of pop pleasure taken from their fantastically received second album nights out. a multi layered party playlist that gurgles out anthems without pause - a sleeping giant of a dancefloor creeper that will be everyones favourite in approximately six months time.
from its hallmark opening bassline, to the synth heavy powerchords of the whistle along chorus, theres no straying from the fact that metronomys future single heartbreaker is catchy as hell. its an electronic ode to male heartbreak that ll both cut you to the quick and have you dancing all the way to the therapists chair. sonically, heartbreaker is perhaps metronomys most precise, radio friendly, and sure fire hit single to date. it best represents the straight forward genius of a band who ve been sitting on sizeable chunk of pioneering electronic ideas since mount first began recording under the bands moniker in 2005. they ve maintained a wholly modest approach to stardom whilst amassing an army of strangely obsessive fans. with a full package of club floor fillers and luxurious disco mixes, heartbreaker is the most zeitgeist capturing record of the moment, a must have for pop lovers, dance lovers, indie kids and the discerning music consumer.
with their new album in the bag and slated for release this september, and a wealth of festival appearances on the horizon for the coming months, metronomy drop new single >>holiday<< this july. lyrically, it may be a humourous spotlight on fairly commonplace relationship-induced tensions, but sonically, >>holiday<< flies the flag for the darker, disenchanted elements of metronomys new long player.
first single to be lifted from the forthcoming lp is a flawless representation of some of the freakishly danceable tracks contained therein. a wholly original mashup of electronics, my heart rate rapid is sheer falsetto laden, drum battering brilliance. although metronomys elliptical, insidious, multi coloured art pop sounds nothing like colognes legendary purveyors of prog disco, can do offer clues to the lineage the band belong to. add early brian eno, sparks, devo, talking heads, soft cell, and then scratch your head for more recent examples of abstract music, full of experiment, risk, and individuality that somehow resolves itself into pop that makes you sing and dance and feel like a big kid and you realise that you cant think of any, because metronomy are, in the current pop milieu, an utterly unique proposition.
metronomy release their third album, the english riviera through because music. the follow up to 2008s critically acclaimed >nights out<, >the english riviera< is a sonic progression of epic proportions and affirms metronomy front man and producer, joseph mount, as a rare british talent
dj haus goes a little freaky on the helta skelta ep. this 4 track ep show his strangely funky side with some odd and jerky rhythms and melodies. it takes its cues from the windy city but doesnt hide dj haus roots in the uk with a bleepy techno twist and pirate radio energy.
the next release on the la-based culprit truly represents the new age of global, musical connectivity. a showcase of original material from three artists, separated by locale but united by a like-minded approach to dance music - londoner and frequent culprit flier matt tolfrey, miami-based lazaro casanova, making his label debut, and the local angeleno boy nikko gibler pay tribute to a lifestyle spent in planes, hotel and at airports with the aptly named, lax ep
