Metronomy Return With First New Song In Three Years Lately

Thursday, 30 May 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Metronomy have shared their first new song in three years.

Titled Lately, the shimmering indie-rock song builds up to a soaring chorus and comes with a video directed by the group's own Joseph Mount. It features the band as miniature versions of themselves as a nod to the '80s film Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Mount wrote on their website:

"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 realized 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."

The track marks the British quintet's long-awaited follow up to their 2016 LP 'Summer 08', with a full-length expected to arrive later this year.
