Metronomy Australian Tour 2012 – Falls Festival Sideshows

Written by Brayden Darke on November 30, 2011

Metronomy have announced Australian tour dates on the back of their appearance on the Falls Festival, Field Day and Summafieldayze this new years. They will be playing two additional shows at Manning Bar in Sydney and Brisbane at The Zoo.

Oscar + Martin will be special guests at both shows plus the already announced Melbourne show at the Hi-Fi on Friday January 6th.

Metronomy are riding high on universal acclaim for their Mercury Prize-nominated third album, The English Riviera. Turning away from the ice-cool, digital melancholia of Nights Out, the new album has the warm studio feel of 70s artists like Fleetwood Mac, and is filled with languid funk and belting pop with killer hooks.

It is just the latest in a series of reinventions from Metronomy, which began life over a decade ago in Devon in founder Joseph Mount’s bedroom. From those initial, Björk and Aphex Twin-inspired experiments on a home computer, the band has evolved to a live four-piece outfit with Oscar Cash on keys, Gbenga Adelekan on bass and the beguiling Anna Prior on drums.
