Description

    Alternative electropop darlings Metronomy are back with their scintillating third album, 'The English Riviera' , out May 6th on reknowned French music label Because Music. The follow up to their critically acclaimed 2008 release 'Nights Out', 'The English Riviera' is a sonic progression of epic proportions affirming Metronomy's relevance in today's music landscape. Front man and producer, Joseph Mount, is a rare British talent. Having produced, co-written and remixed such notable international acts such as Gorillaz, Roots Manuva, Lykke Li and Diplo to name a few, this is the first Metronomy album that Mount has taken out of his bedroom and recorded in a proper studio. The results are telling. Though embracing warmer pop melodies, Metronomy have by no means left the dancefloor behind. Since 'Nights Out', the band have swollen to a four piece with new members Anna Prior on drums, Gbenga Adelekan on bass, original member Oscar Cash on keys/sax, and Joe himself on vocals, keys and guitar. This expansion of personnel is reflective of a new record that is mapped by vast soundscapes, incredible depth and warmth, and big pop hooks. Characterised throughout with a sense of warmth and richness, 'The English Riviera' is in parts reminiscent of seminal 1970's West Coast studio albums from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, but due to Mount's studio wizardry, and Metronomy's signature quirky lyricism, the record sounds fresh, vibrant and unmistakably of its time.
