Joe Mount hasn’t always been the songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist auteur that Metronomy fans know and revere today. Eight summers ago he was living a wild life in London. “I can’t remember a single night in, sat in a nice room just watching the telly,” he reminisces.
Instead of burying that wide-eyed time, Mount returned to it by making 2016’s album ‘Summer 08’, the sequel to Nights Out. It was an album he’d waited eight years to make, despite the success of releases like Pip Paine, The English Riviera and Love Letters.
“I love OutKast. I love David Bowie and old Daft Punk. I wanted to do a mature, quite eclectic pop record in that vein.”
