I have been into Metronomy for a few years now, their new record The English Riviera comes out on Tues 4/19. I am stoked cause if the rest of the record is as cool as the few tracks I have heard then its gonna kill. I love the stripped down arrangements and pro production. A lot peeps think you have to sound lo-fi and shitty to stand out or that its cooler to not sound pro…not true. It’s just harder to sound good when everything is recorded well cause there is no muck to hide behind. So when a band comes along that actually has great arrangements and great songs and a great vision of how is should all be put together, they benefit from higher fidelity.
She Wants has a real early Cure type English thing with that chorused bass and all. It’s a creeper track…the more you listen the better it gets. So keep listening!
You can pick up She Wants and peep The Look vid here.
You can snag The Bay via Ace. (dope ass blog, btw)
