Metronomy is a delicious anachronism somewhere between modern electro and vintage pop. It’s also a group that metamorphoses from studio to concert. On stage, Metronomy is an upbeat foursome with a carefully crafted unusual visual identity. At their first visit to the Lab in 2014, shining clouds, disco balls, and 80s synths surrounded the band’s members, who were dressed in elegant white suits. In the studio, it’s really all about one man: Joseph Mount. Metronomy was already the stage name of this British artist when he was composing beats on an old iMac G3, before becoming the pop phenomenon of today. On the album Summer 08, released in 2016, Joseph Mount went back to his roots by recording practically all the instruments himself. Tinged with a certain melancholy, this album evokes the fateful summer that saw Metronomy morph from a teenage project to a veritable pop hymn machine. The sunny melodies and booming basses, always effective, will take on a new dimension in concert with his three joyful musicians.
