Metronomy Releasing ‘The English Riviera’ April 19

    Fellow Prefix writer Matthew Richardson highlighted Metronomy’s latest single, “The Look,” last week. He noted that if  “The Look” is any indication, we might be “in for a less obviously danceable record with [their third album,] The English Riviera.” That’s pretty much what the British quartet is going for as they were influenced heavily by late-1990s indie pop while recording the album, according to a release.


    And it was announced today that Metronomy’s U.S. fans will hear the album just one day later than their overseas cohorts. The band’s European label — French indie Because Music — has partnered with Big Beat/Atlantic Records. As a result, The English Riviera is due out in the U.S. April 19.
