British band Metronomy have released a video for ‘Whitsand Bay’.
Sam Davis and Tom Andrew directed the video, which features shots of disco lights in empty rooms, desolate outdoor spaces, and elsewhere.
The band’s founder and frontman Joseph Mount had this to say about the song in a press release: “This is a pivotal track between the old idea I had for the album (i.e. a more standard form 10 track piece) and what the album is now. It’s intentionally free and easy and uses a loop I made on the LinnDrum to create the ‘drum ‘n’ bass lite’ rhythm. It’s one of my favorite tracks on the album because it became a starting point for what the album is now. I also quite like the idea of having another song called the bay to distract people from the original bay.”
Metronomy released a new album, Metronomy Forever, last year via Because Music.
