Spry, catchy and peppered with just enough melancholy to tug at the ol’ heartstrings: For six albums straight now, Metronomy have been treating us royally to their vibrant indie pop eclecticism. Metronomy Forever, the very on-brand tongue-in-cheek title of their latest LP, is a worthy inclusion. With straight-up anthems such as ’Salted Caramel Ice Cream’ and ‘Lately’ the band casually added to what was already one of the best and most consistent repertoires of the past two decades, one that includes mainstays ‘The Look’ and ‘The Bay’. Skipping a Metronomy show at Best Kept Secret is once again a folly.
