Metronomy

Metronomy takes a blender, tosses in indie rock, electronica en wonky pop and adds a dash of disco and funk to boot. These oddball pop wizards are led by Joe Mount, a man who can translate any archaic sound into something futuristic and vice versa. Indeed, Metronomy conjure hooks more sticky than a lollipop. After four dazzling LPs and a fair share of official remixes for the likes of Gorillaz, Franz Ferdinand, Kate Nash and Lykke Li, Metronomy released their fifth entry Summer 08 last year.
