One of our favorite bands, Metronomy, are back with a new single we cannot get enough of. Seriously at this point if Spotify could talk she’d ask me “Are you sure you want to play “Lately” for the 40,000th time?” YES I’M SURE. “Lately” is out now everywhere you buy your music. Joe Mount (vocals, keyboards and guitar) said of the new music video:
“This music video is a pop promo in the grand tradition of pop promos: End of school on a Friday afternoon, Mysterious little people that live in a cassette tape, concerned parents and special FX. The song and video are both about growing up.
I’ve absolutely loved taking the opportunity to direct our own music videos. I have quite strong opinions on what music videos are for in 2019 and how they should be presented and this has been a chance for me to put my money where my mouth is!
The most impressive thing I’ve realised is how much of a group effort creating a music video is. I’ve always known it, but this time I’ve obviously worked much closer with the various characters, involved in every department. So, thank you to them.”
Metronomy will be playing a ton of festivals over the course of this summer around the U.K. and Europe, so check to see if they’re playing a festival near you and don’t miss their epic live show!
