Artist of the week - Metronomy

Metronomy have gone from solo bedroom beat electro to a full blown 60's synth pop band over the course of four albums and this week saw the release of newest album Love Letters.

Picking up where Mercury nominated (and amazing) The English Riviera left off, Love Letters  sees the band trade synth pop in for psych and soul influenced sounds, all recorded 100% analogue at London's famous Toe Rag Studios.  

Here at See they are definitely our most talked about band this week, they are currently on tour in support of the new album and have numerous slots lined up for festivals this Summer.  If you are not already heading to see them let's convince you!  Hit play on our Spotify mix and dive in!

Here's the band in session performing tracks from the new album, they play 'Reservoir, which is good, because that's probably my favourite track on the album.  Thanks Metronomy.
