Dig Out Metronomy's Stellar Nuevo Musique Video For Their Single "Salted Caramel Ice Cream"

Celebrating 20 years since forming a musical powerhouse group, English electronic Metronomy have unleashed a groovy funky stellar tune entitled "Salted Caramel Ice Cream".

Off their new album, Metronomy Forever, set for a September 13th via their record label Because Music, the enigmatic band shared a yummy musique video for “Salted Caramel Ice Cream”.

Directed by frontman Joseph Mount, thee aesthetics were influenced by a VHS tape of the MTV show 120 Minutes. According to reports it was given to Joseph by a friend. “It’s something I’d get him to do every so often as I was a bit obsessed with music TV at the time.”

Mount continued spilling his brain. “On one particular tape was the video for ‘Sonne’ by Rammstein, I’d never seen them before and it blew my mind. This video is a sort of homage to that, but with an added story about the gentrification of ice cream parlors.”

Aside from Joseph (vocals, keyboards, and guitar), the group also consists of Oscar Cash (saxophone, backing vocals, guitars and keyboards), Anna Prior (drums and vocals), Olugbenga Adelekan (bass guitar and vocals) and Michael Lovett (keyboards and guitars). Metronomy is also known for their dazzling remixes under the same band name.

They've collaborated with many artists including some of ItsNotYouItsMe favorites, Gorillaz, Franz Ferdinand, Klaxons, Goldfrapp, Young Knives, Ladytron, Kate Nash, Lady Gaga and Lykke Li!
Metronomy's upcoming album "Forever" shall include 17 new songs.

The group explained of the record in a statement saying, “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.”

Without further ado get into the Metronomy groove with their latest dynamic, razzle-dazzle number, "Salted Caramel Ice Cream"!
