Watch Metronomy share ‘Insecurity’ video

Metronomy share ‘Insecurity’ video

Shit goes down at a disco in the brand new visuals.

Fresh off of a fantastic performance at London’s iconic Roundhouse last week, Metronomy are sharing the new vid for ‘Metronomy Forever’ cut ‘Insecurity’.

Seeing the band play at a weird disco that soon turns out to be some kind off science experiment, the idea formed when frontman Joe Mount discovered Philadelphia band Joy Again and fell in love with their music videos, reaching out to directors Richard Phillip Smith and Jake Lazovick to see if they could recreate the same magic in a Metronomy vid.

“Working with Rich and Jake to make the new video was an absolute pleasure,” says Joe. “Not only are they a bunch of geniuses, but they also took us to Philadelphia to film it, we love Philadelphia. I never really got the bottom of what the video is about, but I think it has something to do with me conspiring with some ‘suit’ to create the perfect party.”

“We trade music videos for the opportunity to expand our own cinematic universe,” adds Richard Phillip Smith. “Each project is a continuation of the last, so when Joe reached out to us after seeing a video we had made and asked if we would make something ‘in the same world’, we knew this would be a fruitful collaboration. For this video, we set up a paranoid environment where the rules and hierarchies are unsettled and everyone is under intense scrutiny. Sometimes parties can feel like this. Many thanks to Metronomy and the cast and crew who helped this video assemble itself!”
