Metronomy started out in Totnes in Devon. 'The English Riviera', Metronomy’s third album–and second, after 'Nights Out', on Because Music–is a belting, unashamed pop album, a gorgeous record full of languid, sunset funk songs, which looks set to propel Metronomy even further than they have travelled thus far. The idea of 'The English Riviera' connects Mount and co with the chunk of the South West coastline near to where he grew up. Mount is pleased with the path the band is heading down, although he is still keen to keep things fresh next time round. For now, though, we can just enjoy the warmth of 'The English Riviera', the latest instalment in Metronomy’s epic journey into pop’s heartlands.
