I have some deep love for Metronomy’s 2011 LP The English Riviera. It’s just so catchy and breezy and effortless and restrained, a sticky addictive slice of synthy, groovy, wonky pop that I still listen to on the reg. Though I haven’t loved the albums that have followed from Joe Mount’s UK indie-pop outfit, last year’s Metronomy Forever, their sixth, had some real fun bops: the guitar-riffed near-rock number “Insecurity”; the “Funkytown”-vibing dance number that is “Salted Caramel Ice Cream”; the fast-paced, womped-up, late-night driving appeal of “Lately”; and the falsetto-caressed cheekiness of “Sex Emoji.” Metronomy are most definitely fun and far more energetic in a live setting than their recordings might imply; when I saw them in Orlando a few years back, they were all wearing matching white suits that felt very Miami Vice-by-Brits and they executed synchronized dance moves at various points throughout the set. Loved it.
