Track of the Week – Metronomy

The past few weeks have been a treat for new music – with new releases from the likes of Radiohead, James Blake and Red Hot Chili Peppers. However, the music news that got me the most excited this week was Metronomy’s announcement of their new album Summer 08, coming out July 1st, and the simultaneous release of their new single ‘Old Skool’. The album’s 10 song tracklist has also been confirmed and Robyn will feature on one of the tracks, which is very exciting news.

‘Old Skool’ is a funkalicious song that is irresistibly catchy and cool. With its nostalgic sounding DJ-scratching and typical Metronomy quirky hooks – it is quite simply a triumph. It also has one of the most perfectly suited music videos I’ve seen in a long time. Featuring the wonderful Sharon Horgan, the video showcases a suburban 70s house party full of tension and questionable dance moves.
