British electronic-pop group Metronomy have recently announced the upcoming release of Summer 08, the follow-up to 2014’s Love Letters. Along with the news, the group also released the first single “Old Skool,” which revisited their signature funky aesthetic, as well as the jaunty, swirling track “Back Together.” This week, the group released the more moody “Night Owl,” which may the most indicative of frontman Joseph Mount’s ultimate desires to create a more mature dance album. After a somber, yet lush tonal opening, the track erupts into a catchy beat, making Mount’s vocals exposing the frustrations of the late-night club scene seem ironically euphoric. Summer 08 will be released July 1st.
