“[With] one of British music’s most exciting songwriters and producers . . . Metronomy are determined to remain distinctive and progressive with their music.”—Exclaim

Following the infectious electropop of their 2011 album The English Riviera, artful English quartet Metronomy reveal darker, more analogue and soulful tones with their most recent release, Love Letters. Singer/songwriter Joseph Mount’s leftfield, lovelorn songs create an undertow of melancholy, while his band delivers stripped-back, Motown-like grooves that captivate. In concert, catchy minimalist synth oscillations and funky rhythms keep Metronomy’s unconventional charms percolating to full effect. Dawn Golden (another project of LA-based producer Dexter Tortoriello of Houses renown) opens the evening with its riveting, emotionally loaded songs starkly rendered with dark sonic textures.
