I saw METRONOMY perform at the Imperial in Vancouver on October 26th, 2014. The band were a cohesive unit in their coordinating white outfits and they had a fantastic retro set. METRONOMY was impressive, fun, and everything I hoped they would be live!
Their press person never got back to me about an interview, so after the show I waited outside in front of their tour bus for over an hour at Main and Hastings, which is not an ideal area. Finally lead singer JOSEPH MOUNT came out and gave me an interview that far exceeded my expectations (he could have had an attitude or not felt like talking after their active show).
METRONOMY consists of lead singer/guitarist/keyboardist JOSEPH MOUNT, saxophonist/guitarist/keyboardist/back-up vocalist OSCAR CASH (who is also Mount’s cousin), bassist/back-up vocalist GBENGA ADELEKAN, and drummer/back-up vocalist ANNA PRIOR.

METRONOMY was started by JOSEPH MOUNT in Devon, England in 1999. While one of the original band members left the band, and there have been additions along the way, there have been 4 albums released under the name METRONOMY:
- Love Letters (2014)
- The English Riviera (2011)
- Nights Out (2008)
- Pip Paine (Pay The 5000 Pounds You Owe) (2006)
