Metronomy ‘The English Riviera’ New Album Out May

Written by Brayden Darke on April 5, 2011

Electro pop band Metronomy have announced their album The English Riviera for a May 6th release. It is the follow up to 2008 release Nights Out

A charming ode to the area of Devon coast, UK frontman and producer Joseph Mount, grew up in, The English Riviera is in part a concept album about his own daydreamed vision of The English Riviera. The tone for the album is set by the opening sounds of seagulls, distant waves and a string quartet. However, any pre-conceived notions of whimsy one might have from the opening title track are quickly dissolved leaving the listener relishing in the gorgeous undulation that is The English Riviera; in particular with the giant swell that is the bass line of We Broke Free and the oceanic shudders of lush layered guitars and synths.
