“The metronome is not a device known for its deviation. It strikes a predictable, functional pattern. Each time Metronomy release an album, on the other hand, there is a scorched earth change of pace and tone. Yet the pulse never disappears, it just reanimates for a brand new dance floor.” (Metronomy) As sexy as it sounds this latest single on Metronomy’s third album ‘The English Riviera’ is absolutely awesome. One of the coolest videos of 2011, it is slick, beautifully graded, cheeky, playful and perfect for the summer. This languid funky pop-tastick track has a distinguished class to it thanks to the direction of David Wilson (BlinkInk) and the sharp editing plays its role well courtesy of Cut+Run’s James Rose.
