I was listening to Jason Bentley on KCRW the other morning and he played a couple of really good tracks in a row, but I heard The Look by Metronomy and was instantly smitten, like had to Shazam it because it was so good. Honestly I had never heard of Metronomy before, but they’re a UK band that kind of reminds me a bit of New Order blended with Radiohead mixed with Ra Ra Riot. I’m probably totally off in my description but what I’m trying to say is that I really love their newest album The English Riviera, which was even nominated for a Mercury Prize.
The video for the song is pretty cute, I mean, how can you not love those seagulls? Especially when they’re playing bumper cars. If you dig this song you should absolutely buy the album, it’s one of the best thing I’m listening to right now.
