2008 release. The first single to be lifted from the album Nights Out LP is a flawless representation of some of the freakishly danceable tracks contained therein. A wholly original mashup of electronics, "My Heart Rate Rapid" is sheer falsetto-laden, drum-battering brilliance. Although Metronomy's elliptical, insidious, multi-colored art-pop sounds nothing like Cologne's legendary purveyors of prog-disco, Can do offer clues to the lineage the band belong to. Add early Brian Eno, Sparks, Devo, Talking Heads, Soft Cell, and then scratch your head for more recent examples of abstract music, full of experiment, risk, and individuality that somehow resolves itself into pop... that makes you sing and dance and feel like a big kid... and you realize that you can't think of any, because Metronomy are, in the current pop milieu, an utterly unique proposition.
