The creative indie-tinged electronic act
Metronomy is one of the UK’s best loved modern electro-pop groups whose live performances often include dance routines and light shows. It was formed in 1999 by Joseph Mount, who grew up in South Devon. As a teenager he began using his father’s old computer to write electronic compositions. Influenced by bands like Autechre and Funkstorung, he chose the name Metronomy because it sounded similar and interesting.
In 2002, Mount moved to Brighton and recruited his cousin Oscar Cash and an old friend, Gabriel Stebbing, to join the band. Their debut album was 2005’s Paine (Pay The £5,000 You Owe) and it drew influences from acts like Devo, N.E.R.D and David Bowie.
In those early years, Mount was building a reputation as a multi-instrumentalist, producer and master remixer for numerous other bands, and he often used the Metronomy name for those projects too.
Their sophomore album, Nights Out, arrived in 2008 and featured the singles Radio Ladio, A Thing For Me and Heartbreaker. Shortly after its release, Stebbing left the band to pursue other projects, but he reappeared for future shows and albums.
With the addition of Olugbenga Adelekan on bass and Anna Prior on drums, Metronomy recorded the album that would make them famous, 2011’s The English Riviera. A love letter to the stretch of coast where Mount grew up, many of its songs – like the title track, The Bay and The Look – boast sounds of seagulls and waves. Metronomy received a Mercury Prize nomination that year and the album was certified gold in the UK.
The band released three more albums – 2014’s Love Letters, 2016’s Summer 08 and 2019’s Metronomy Forever – in the decade that followed plus added Michael Lovett, who’d been part of their touring band, as a permanent member.
To celebrate, the 10-year anniversary of their career-changing album, Metronomy announced The English Riviera will be re-issued on 30 April 2021 with six previously unreleased tracks including Picking Up For You. They also confirmed details for a UK tour in April and May 2022, culminating with a huge headline gig at London’s Alexandra Palace on 7 May 2022.
