Metronomy coming down for summer?
Mon 23rd May, 2011 Newsin
UK eccentrics Metronomy have just dropped off their latest batch of oddball electronic pop-tunes with The English Riviera, with that record already spawning a slew of big remixes from Moonlight Matters, Fred Falke and the Erol Alkan remix which Digitalism opened their ITM-FM mix with.
To continue their current hot streak Metronomy are now eyeing a return to Australian clubs with a visit over our summer party season apparently on the cards.
Speaking to ITM’s sister rockers FasterLouder recently, Metronomy frontman Joe Mount dropped hints about some upcoming tour plans around the New Year’s stretch.
“Absolutely, I guess we’ve known for a little while that we’ll been coming out,” Mount admitted. “I think we’re gonna be there around New Years and maybe a couple of weeks afterwards, I’m not sure when it’ll be announced. We will come back and we will continue to come back until we’re told to fuck off.”
We’ll continue to wait for word on how those tour plans shape up (could it be Field Day? Falls Festival?), especially considering we’ve got more than a few months of wait time between now and then. In the meantime you can check out that Erol mix that everyone’s losing their shiz over below.
