Metronomy are an electronic music group formed by Joseph Mount in Totnes, Devon, England in 1999. The current band consists of Joseph Mount (composer, singer, keyboards and guitar), Oscar Cash (saxophone, backing vocals, guitars and keyboards), Anna Prior (drums and vocals) and Gbenga Adelekan (bass guitar and vocals).

3 piece Metronomy have over the past two years, been steadily garnering a formidable fanbase, as well as a strong reputation amongst fellow artists, through the release of their first album (2005’s critically acclaimed ‘Pip Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe)’), consistent touring, and Joseph’s so far prolific remixing career - CSS, Ladytron, Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand, Scissor Sisters, Sebastien Tellier, Gorillaz, Love Is All, Kate Nash, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Roots Manuva and Bright Eyes are just some of the artists he has so far worked with. Metronomy’s indie-dance creds are already firmly in place, and setting them up for big year ahead.

From its hallmark opening bassline, to the synth-heavy powerchords of the whistle-along chorus, there’s no straying from the fact that Metronomy’s future single ‘Heartbreaker’ is catchy as hell. It’s an electronic ode to male heartbreak that’ll both cut you to the quick and have you dancing all the way to the therapist’s chair.

‘My lyrics are pretty basic’ explains Metronomy’s founder member Joe Mount, ‘but the gist of Heartbreaker is having a friend who’s in some awful relationship, and keeps hassling you and talking to you about it. So it ends up ruining your friendship. So, do us both a favour: ditch her. It’s not so much that friends have done this to me, but I’ve definitely done it to friends of mine. It’s a love song between two men, but it’s kind of hidden that that’s what it is.’

Sonically, ‘Heartbreaker’ is perhaps Metronomy’s most precise, radio-friendly, and sure-fire ‘hit’ single to date. It best represents the straight-forward genius of a band who’ve been sitting on sizeable chunk of pioneering electronic ideas since Mount first began recording under the band’s moniker in 2005. They’ve maintained a wholly modest approach to stardom whilst amassing an army of strangely obsessive fans.

With the release of ‘Heartbreaker’, and the forthcoming longplayer it’s taken from, Metronomy’s graduation from a music aficionado’s act of choice, to a band of hefty, chart-bothering potential, is certainly proven:- “Heartbreaker…I’ll break ya.”
