With their upcoming second album, 'Nights Out', Metronomy have sure enough crafted a future electro-pop classic. The first single to be lifted from the 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. It will be released on the band's new label BECAUSE on 7th Aprilst. 'Nights Out', due for release in May, is a second album that feels like a debut. It's the first Metronomy album for BECAUSE; the first to be vocal-led, with the self-effacing Joseph Mount (founder member and the band's chief songwriter) stepping up and grabbing the mic for most of the tracks; and, crucially, the first to introduce Metronomy as a three-piece band, rather than a pseudonym for Joseph's solo work. Alas, so much to say, so little page space... MUCH more on the album (which is a substantial blinder) coming soon... in the mean time, after completing a hardcore touring schedule just before Christmas - having toured more or less back-to-back with the likes of Kate Nash, CSS, Foals and Bloc Party - Metronomy are readying themselves for their first full headline tour in a little while. In the past year, the band's live show has come to be something of a speciality, asserting them as a serious, seriously good, live band - with the helping hand of their occasional dance troupe and now trademark light show, and with an arsenal of electro-pop belters now at their fingertips, Metronomy's game has most certainly been upped.
