Metronomy Hit Le Trabendo

Will Hutchins writing for I V Y paris

Metronomy Do you like quirky British pop music? Do you go to sleep humming catchy analogue synth melodies? Does the sight of three young and pasty Englishmen in black t-shirts with lights stuck to their chest send you giddy with excitement?!

Then, my friend, you need to head over to the 19th on April 2nd to witness the electro/indie-pop spectacle of Metronomy exhibiting their live skills at Le Trabendo.

The band made up of songwriter Joseph Mount, Oscar Cash, and Gabriel Stebbing caused a fair few waves in the blogosphere last year with the release of their second album Nights Out and a slurry of fantastic remixes.


Concentrating on building great skewed pop songs with more vocals than on their first album, Pip Paine – Pay the £5000 You Owe, their 2008 release was a rather wondrous amalgamation of electronic bips and beeps, 80’s indie and electronica and bass-lines that would cause your grandmother to bounce from floor to ceiling.

All this plus more wrapped in spot-on chord progressions and tied with a bow of classic British pop eccentricity (as can be seen in any of their videos). Nights Out was definitely one of the top albums of last year and the single ‘Heartbreaker’ was without doubt the most gloriously catchy pop song of the year to feature the sound of a creaking door (Though it might be the squall of a seagull. I don’t think I’ll ever be entirely sure.)

They also do a great sideline in remixes, having rebuilt songs by such luminaries as Bloc Party, Klaxons and CSS. My two personal favourite Metronomy remixes are their takes on I’m Good, I’m Gone by Lykke Li and Dead Disco’s The Treatment.

This will definitely be a fun show and is already being heavily ‘affiched’ on the Metro and is sold out on digitick, so hurry up and get tickets if you want to catch them!
