Do you lot still remember Metronomy?

Someone once described them to me as the biggest load of wank they've ever heard. Fair enough they are a bit of a hit-and-miss band. Their 2008 album Nights Out was an extremely unbalanced set of pure electro-pop wonder and odd experimentalism. The album before that (Pip Paine) even more so. But Nights Out did have some brilliant tracks on it.
Before I went back to it the other day, I'd totally forgotten just how great Radio Ladio is.

Metronomy have got their third album called The English Riviera coming out and they seemed to have turned a new more mellow leaf. The songs I've heard off it sound more like Hot Chip's slower stuff than what I'd expected.

The first single She Wants (mp3) has got a video out. It hasn't got the most original idea, but it's a fun one nonetheless.

Second single The Look's video is new, relevant and worth a watch (depending on how you feel about seagulls and people playing musical intruments)

The Bay sounds more like the familiar Metronomy.
