British pop band Metronomy released the sunny, shiny, sexy video for The Bay a week ago, and that warrants some celebration. Or at least a post. Don't know who Metronomy is? Lucky for you I'm here to help you out with that. Metronomy are a band from London, who went through a series of roster changes before settling on their current incarnation, comprised of four members. It seems like they've finally hit the nail on the head, as their latest album, The English Riviera, is nothing short of spectacular. On the European side of things, these guys are definitely a 'hype' band. When The English Riviera came out in the middle of April I couldn't spend 5 minutes perusing a French or British website/blog/magazine/other artist's Twitter feed/etc. without some sort of glowing mention of the band. Stateside everyone's been a bit slower to catch on (what else is fucking new), but I can say with full conviction that these guys are worth all the hype they can get.
Check out The Bay, a glittering, bouncing, purely genius pop tune, watch the sexy video, and if you're still looking for the perfect 'Summer Album', go buy The English Riviera immediately.
