- Metronomy's Joseph Mount
Popfrenzy are very pleased to announce, due to popular demand, Metronomy will be playing three additional shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne this January. Already playing Sydney's Field Day on New Year's Day and Summafieldayze on January 2, Metronomy have responded to the call of their fans and will also be playing The Zoo, Wednesday January 4th 2012, Manning Bar, Thursday January 5th, 2012 and The Hifi, Friday January 6th 2012.
Metronomy are riding high on universal acclaim for their Mercury Prize-nominated third album, The English Riviera. Turning away from the ice-cool, digital melancholia of Nights Out, the new album has the warm studio feel of 70s artists like Fleetwood Mac, and is filled with languid funk and belting pop with killer hooks.
It is just the latest in a series of reinventions from Metronomy, which began life over a decade ago in Devon in founder Joseph Mount's bedroom. From those initial, Björk and Aphex Twin-inspired experiments on a home computer, the band has evolved to a live four-piece outfit with Oscar Cash on keys, Gbenga Adelekan on bass and the beguiling Anna Prior on drums.
