Joseph Mount, aka the brains behind Metronomy, wrote their new 2019 album all by himself in the English countryside. It comes three years after Summer 08 and ten years after Nights Out, the album that first unveiled the band to Europe and which was re-issued in February 2019 with an assortment of unreleased demos and B-sides. Although nights out are a thing of the past for Joseph Mount since he left Paris to settle down with his children in the countryside, he still manages to conjure up that same feeling of drinking and dancing on a warm summers evening in this new album. The sneak previews that he had been dropping since springtime in anticipation of the album also seemed to follow the same timeless style, notably on Salted Caramel Ice Cream with its retro synth, as well as Lately and Wedding Bells. The rest of this jam-packed album (with a whopping 17 tracks) has a mix of electro, rock, pop, funk and even deep house (like in Miracle Rooftop), with plenty of hits that will get you up on your feet. But is it enough to get Metronomy into the realm of Blur, Oasis and Elastica? Joseph Mount certainly hopes so as he revealed in an interview with the English press that he is saddened about how the band is not as well-known in his own country, “At what point do you become embraced by the country? You’re stood behind a window, waving frantically. 'We’re here! We’ve been here for ages! Let us in’. And all the time, you see people coming and going and people held up, and you’re… still there. [..] Its only at the very end of your career that they’re like ‘Oh yes, great band. I’ve always liked them’, which is a shame”. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

The Bat for Lashes universe is one that is all its own. When seeking inspiration for the album, the British singer and producer Natasha Khan wrote and directed a short film. Put together between LA, London, her native Brighton, and Woodstock in New Jersey (where she has a home studio), the whole of The Bride will be performed in a very particular way, like the first singles, which were first performed live in churches. The album itself narrates the story of a woman who watches her husband die en route to their marriage, a theme that is sometimes particularly melancholy (Joe’s Dream). Between the overuse of reverb and lilting vocals, the album is nevertheless pretty and destabilising, which showcases the genuine artistic method that is at work. The producer Dan Carey (Nick Mulvey) and musician Ben Christophers have both supported Natasha Khan, to iron out the creases in this otherwise well-conceived whole.
