MGMT remix Metronomy's 'The Look'

Metronomy have also announced some brand new UK tour dates!

Ahead of the release of the 10th anniversary reissue of ‘The English Riviera’, Metronomy are sharing a remix of ‘The Look’ by MGMT!

About writing ‘The Look’, Joe says that he “came up with the bit that gets stuck in your head; the der-de-der-der bit. I played around with it a little, hit a wall and thought ‘it’s not really Metronomy, is it’. Four months later, we finished recording The Look at the Smokehouse in London. We quite liked it, but that was about it. Then I distinctly remember the journalist Dave Simpson asking me about the song after we performed it for the first time at the Leeds Cockpit in January 2011. That was probably the moment I realised it had something about it.

“I still don’t know precisely what that something is, but when we perform The Look live and I hear thousands of people chanting the bit that gets stuck in your head back at me, der-de-der-der, it often brings a tear to my eye. It really is amazing what that seaside song and this whole album has done for Metronomy.”

The remix also follows the news that Metronomy are heading off on tour in April and May next year, including a stop along the English Riviera to play in Torquay and rounding out at London’s Alexandra Palace.
