London, UK – Honestly, I haven’t listened to Metronomy since he released “On Dancefloors” on his 2008 album Nights Out. But the London-based artist released his fifth studio album Summer 08 earlier this month. Just a couple days ago, they released the music video for their track “Night Owl” – a heavy synthpop-driven track. The intro starts off pretty eerie but when the music starts kicking in, you get a feel of the track in general. The first two lyrics really brought my attention to the track: Don’t need your number babe / but I’ll take it anyway. There’s something oddly honest about the track that just makes me like it a lot. The chorus on “Night Owl” is pretty heavy on the synths but you get a pretty good balance between more rock-driven and the synth-driven blocks.
