Metronomy release their third album, ‘The English Riviera’ on April 11th through Because Music. The follow up to 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Nights Out’, ‘The English Riviera’ is a sonic progression of epic proportions and affirms Metronomy front man and producer, Joseph Mount, as a rare British talent. Since ‘Nights Out’, the band have swollen to a four piece with new members Anna Prior on drums, Gbenga Adelekan on bass, original member Oscar Cash on keys/sax, and Joe himself on vocals, keys and guitar. This expansion of personnel is reflective of a new record that is mapped by vast soundscapes, incredible depth and warmth, and big pop hooks Part love letter to the area of Devon coast Mount grew up in and part concept album about his own semi-fictionalised vision of “The English Riviera", the tone for the album is set by the opening sounds of seagulls, distant waves and a Music Hall string quartet. However, any notion of whimsy is swiftly dispelled, as the seismic bass line of ‘We Broke Free’ shudders and ushers in waves of layered guitars and synths. Having produced and remixed everyone from Roots Manuva to Kate Nash and the forthcoming album from Nicola Roberts, this is the first Metronomy album that Mount has taken out of his bedroom and recorded in a proper studio. The results are telling. Characterised throughout with a sense of warmth and richness, ‘The English Riviera’ is in parts reminiscent of seminal 1970s West Coast studio albums from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, but due to Mount’s studio wizardry, the record sounds vibrant and entirely of its time. Few other albums released this year will so successfully transcend such a plethora of influences and ideas and form such a coherent body of work. - + duosleeve including the CD inside + poster insert (30 cm square) Tracklisting: Side A: The English Riviera We Broke Free Everything Goes my way The Look She Wants Trouble Side B: The Bay Loving Arm Corinne Some Written Love
