Indie-electro giants Metronomy have shared a brand new song called ‘Up, Higher’ as part of an Amazon Music collaboration.
The track was originally meant to be released on Metronomy’s most recent record from 2019, the LP Metronomy Forever, but was “culled from the final selection!”
In the statement, the group’s leading man Joe Mount shared: “Which seems strange now as it’s such a jam. It was a track we played live on our last US tour, so it’s nice to have it out there in the world now.”
It was the focus of a small Reddit investigation after it’s performance on that tour. Perhaps that excitement surrounding the song pushed the group into releasing the track as a one-off. All we know is we’re happy they did as it lands as a perfect party-starter for the weekend.
It’s a joyful tune and sees the band in their usual slick shape deliver pop tones with a bouncing bassline that cures together as they hang on the shiny synth hooks that await on the chorus.
