Metronomy are back! Indeed they are, and back with news of a new album Summer 08, the follow up to 2014’s Love Letters, due for release on July 1st, and they’ve shared the video for first single ‘Old Skool’.
It’s a funky disco-leaning gem laced with deep grooves, bouncy beats, dripping synths and super catchy melodies combining for an irresistible, danceble adventure. Add to that, Beastie Boys’ turntablist extraordinaire Mix Master Mike also lends a hand, making an appearance with some nimble scratching. It’s been quite some time since we had heard anything new from the electronic outfit, but ‘Old Skool’ has been worth the wait. Marvellous.
