Metronomy Share Colorful Video for New Song “Walking in the Dark”

Metronomy are releasing a new album, Metronomy Forever, on September 13 via Because Music. Now they have shared another song from the album, “Walking in the Dark,” via a video for the track. The song isn’t an obvious single, it’s a slow-burner that maintains one mood throughout. Watch the colorful video below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Frontman Joseph Mount had this to say about the video in a statement: “The ‘Walking in the Dark’ video is the age old tale of the guru and the fisherman set against a green screen backdrop. Clara (who provided the 3D animation) is someone I became aware of through a collaboration between ourselves and Central St Martins college in London a few years ago. Her style is completely unique and something I was desperate to make part of the video. The song is one of my favorites from the new record and gives a wonderful taste of how eclectic the album is.”

Metronomy Forever includes “Lately,” a new song the British band shared via a video in May (it was #1 on our Songs of the Week list). When the album was announced in June they shared a video for another new song from it, “Salted Caramel Ice Cream” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week).

Metronomy Forever is the follow-up to 2016’s Summer 08. Since then Mount did production work on Robyn‘s Honey (Robyn appeared on Summer 08). Mount also moved from Paris to the English countryside, which influenced the album.

Mount had this to say about Metronomy Forever in a previous press release: “What happens is when you’re making music and you enter a world where you have achieved some sort of celebrity no matter how large or small you start to think about yourself in terms of legacy and what you’re going to leave behind and then you realize that’s limited to the interest people have in you. In the end I feel completely comfortable with it. The less importance you place in any art the more interesting it can become in a way…I’m making music, I’m going to do some concerts, I need to feed my children.”

The video for “Lately” was Mount’s directorial debut and he returned behind the camera for the “Salted Caramel Ice Cream” video.
