Metronomy And Oscar Cash Confirm New Project 'Oscar Cash Forever'

Tuesday, 07 April 2020 Written by Sophie Williams

Metronomy and Oscar Cash have announced their new project.

'Oscar Cash Forever' will arrive on April 10 via Because Music. The new material is inspired by the collective's last album, 2019's 'Metronomy Forever', which contains eclectic indie-pop and electronica tracks such as Salted Caramel Ice Cream.

Multi-instrumentalist Cash is a member of Metronomy, and this collection comprises of eight tracks, all of which are named after keyboard sounds. Metronomy frontman Joe Mount said: “Oscar Cash could be the artist of his generation. I wish he’d just put out more of his own music. I hope that this gives him some confidence and that one day we will all hear a proper album from Oscar. For now, ‘Oscar Cash Forever’ is all we have...and I love it”.

Discussing the project, Cash added:

“In late 2018 me and my wife moved to San Francisco, there in our apartment, I set up a small music studio. Metronomy weren’t touring at that time and other than exploring the city, all I was doing was making beats. 

"Across the Atlantic, as ‘Metronomy Forever’ began to take shape, Joe sent me a few rough tracks. To my surprise a lot of the new Metronomy keyboard lines and melodies found their way into some of the music I was making! It happened quite naturally. I sent some of the resulting tracks to Joe with the idea that they could be used as mysterious teasers in the lead up to the official release of ‘Metronomy Forever’. But Joe was very into them and challenged me to make more. He suggested I make something to accompany the album proper. 

"With an electric piano and midi saxophone I went about trying to expand all my ideas eventually turning them into tracks in their own right. 'Oscar Cash Forever' began to take shape. ‘Oscar Cash Forever’ reminds me of the music I made in my early twenties; the same sounds that echoed from mine and Joe’s shared flat in 2003. Hopefully all the little borrowed phrases reveal themselves in new ways along the way. This jazzy and atmospheric exploration is meant to be listened to as a mixtape. It’s a companion piece to the original masterpiece; ‘Metronomy Forever’. Enjoy.”

'Oscar Cash Forever' originally featured as a surprise vinyl as part of the deluxe physical edition of 'Metronomy Forever', but will shortly be getting its own digital release.
