Metronomy have unveiled “Back Together”, the opening track from new album, Summer 08. Metronomy will not be playing any shows around the record, but founder member, Joseph Mount, plays a Summer 08 DJ set at Field Day this weekend (Saturday, June 11, and Sunday, June, 12).
It begins with a cyclical melody, which is then followed by a guitar lead riff. When the bass kicks it, it helps the drums punctuate the rhythm for the, indeed, stomping track. A subtle vocal crescendo builds. The bass breaks out slightly, afterwards, really grooving and not just pounding. It then fades out during these latter moments, the track’s finest hour.
