METRONOMY NEW ALBUM WON THE BARCLAYCARD PRIZE

Metronomy
Metronomy's third album, 'The English Riviera', has been nominated for the 2011 Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize.

'The English Riviera' was released in April 2011 to critical acclaim across the board and has been described by many as the soundtrack to the summer, as it sauntered into the charts. Characterised throughout with a sense of warmth and richness, 'The English Riviera' is in parts reminiscent of seminal 1970s West Coast studio albums from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, but due to Mount's studio wizardry, the record sounds vibrant and entirely of its time.

Metronomy tour this Autumn and play The Royal Albert Hall on October 3rd.
