Editors’ Notes

Over the subaquatic drum loop and synth chords that open Love Letters, Metronomy singer Joseph Mount repeats a pleading refrain: “I’ve gotta beam a message to you.” The sentiment might be a simple one—he’s smitten—but the album that follows is anything but. The band’s fourth full-length is filled with emotionally piercing electro-soul that’s rich with off-kilter invention. Mount’s obsession with love inspires him to send letters across the sea ("Love Letters"), plot a whimsical weekend tryst (“Never Wanted”), and ponder astrological compatibility (“I’m Aquarius”). While these gestures might be time-tested fodder for love songs, there’s extraordinary freshness in the execution—from the bouncing, future-disco groove and warm horn lines on “The Most Immaculate Haircut” to the pseudo-Baroque vintage organ riffs of “Monstrous.”

Customer Reviews

Brilliant album so far.

Love Letters is shaping up to be my album of the year already. "I'm Aquarius" is a completely different take on everything you knew about Metronomy. Very soulful song although the better of the two, in my opinion is "Love Letters". Retro inflected vocals, Trumpets, Piano riffs and an incredible driving bass makes for an extremely groovy, catchy tune. One of their best yet. Joseph Mount is a genius and this band is constantly evolving. With each album they seem to be getting better and better...hopefully the rest of the songs live up to the standards of these two if they could just tour in the U.S....

"The Upsetter" reminds me of terribly repetitive, mid-70’s Pink Floyd with a drum machine. "I'm Aquarius” repeats endlessly, and I had to stop the album here.

This is awful music.

Really, REALLY terrible.

Beginning as a scrappy, lo-fi side project and growing into one of the more creative acts mixing rock and electronic music, Metronomy is the project of London-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Joseph Mount. Named after the musical term for the measurement of time by an instrument, Mount started Metronomy in 1999 as a side project to the other bands he played with, using an old computer that his father gave him to record songs. Metronomy's first full-band lineup also included keyboardist/saxophonist...
