Led by multi-instrumentalist and producer Joseph Mount, Metronomy grew from a scrappy, lo-fi side project into one of the more creative acts mixing rock and electronic music. Drawing on influences ranging from Devo and David Bowie to N.E.R.D. and Pavement, Mount established Metronomy as an equally catchy and off-kilter act with 2006's Pip Paine (Pay the £5000 You Owe). The project's later albums, such as 2011's Mercury Prize-nominated The English Riviera, were smoother and more sophisticated, but still incorporated unexpected elements. In 2019, the band released the retro-futuristic Metronomy Forever, one of their most eclectic albums yet.
Pairing with Because Music and Caroline Australia, the goal with the latest Metronomy album was to reinvigorate Australian audiences who had been waiting for new music from the band for some time. With the release of their sixth studio album, the English electronic music group continue to push a diverse and ambitious sound.
