NEW MUSIC: METRONOMY

Metronomy is Joseph Mount, who makes buzzy electroclash.

 

Joseph started Metronomy whilst still living in Devon as a side project to the various bands he played drums for. He has since claimed that most of these bands were torn apart by girlfriends. Using an outdated computer sold to him by his father, Mount began to make his own electronic compositions. After relocating to Brighton, Metronomy began to build up a reputation for charming live shows, sometimes solo, sometimes joined by Gabriel Stebbing and Oscar Cash who provided support as Metronomy’s backing band. The name Metronomy was originally chosen by Joseph as Metronomy sounded cool and interesting and was in keeping with the bands he was heavily into, namely Autechre and Funkstorung.

 

Metronomy have, thus far, released two albums of original material, Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe) and Nights Out. His new single “A Thing For Me” is out now. The Blackout Mix sounds like The Prodigy gone electro, with some uber-rave keyboards. Terribly, terribly now. The Sinden remix is the better track, with a lovely Dr Who-style bassline. It has happiness written into the structure:
