The first track off upcoming album, Summer 08, Old Skool is a throwback to middle England dinner parties, with parents letting loose downstairs while the kids experience the mayhem through the banisters. Styled to a T, director Dawn Shadforth‘s music video comes complete with shag carpets, bell bottoms and too much food and drink, as Sharon Horgan and Ben Crompton take a lead on the dance floor. As the eccentricities play along to the quirky track, the album itself is named in honor of the last summer front man Joseph Mount had free, so hopefully the rest of it is similarly spritely. Metronomy’s new album, Summer 08, is out July 1st.
