I was already super excited for Metronomy’s new album Summer ’08 and this track has amped that excitement up another few notches. As I mentioned when talking about ‘Old Skool’, it seems like this new album is going to be a callback to Nights Out (my personal favourite and the best Metronomy album as a whole). I mean, it’s in the album title after all.
‘Night Owl’ takes the riff from ‘The Upsetter’ (a highlight of Love Letters) and infuses it with the energy of Nights Out. I really like the lyrics which stand shoulder to shoulder with the best Metronomy tracks.
Track: Night Owl
Form: Summer ’08
