Metronomy have shared a brand new video for their latest single, ‘Whitsand Bay’, ahead of a summer with an increasingly busy schedule.
As you might expect with Metronomy, who completely owned the video game during their peak in the noughties, the video to go alongside the song is a high-concept piece.
The clip, directed by Sam Davis and Tom Andrew, sees a retro disco light find a home across the most unreachable and unwanted places to party.
Speaking about ‘Whitsand Bay’, the band’s Joe Mount told DIY: “This is a pivotal track between the old idea I had for the album (i.e. a more standard form 10 track piece) and what the album is now.”
He continued: “It’s intentionally free and easy and uses a loop I made on the LinnDrum to create the ‘drum ‘n’ bass lite’ rhythm. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the album because it became a starting point for what the album is now. I also quite like the idea of having another song called the bay to distract people from the original bay.”
The video has arrived a few days after the band began announcing festival dates for this year, first up is a slot on both Wide Awake and Iceland Airwaves festival lineups.
