Metronomy - "Love Letters"

New MusicadminComment

The production is a little sloppy, but the latest Metronomy single comes off like a post-punk, new wave take on the sounds of Abba. I can see a bit of Gary Numan or B-52s influencing this track as well. The background vocals are endearing, the horn solo at the finish is snazzy, and I'm liking the messily mashed piano keys throughout the track, too. It's a sweet tune, and opts for a refreshingly raw sound, which most unabashed pop tunes tend to avoid these days, sadly.

Metronomy's next record, which this single is titled after, is dropping on March 10th. Enjoy this song for now, and check a review of the band's previous album below:
