Electronic music group Metronomy began when sixteen year old Joseph Mount got a hold of an old computer and started messing around. Now he’s on tour and performing for audiences around the world. You can check out his band perform in Pittsburgh at The Altar Bar on September 15.
The band came together in England back in 1999 after Mount was approached by someone who said he would put out a record of his work after hearing him experiment with music production and “soundtracking animations” during a DJ sesh. Metronomy released their first album, Pip Paine (Pay the £5000 You Owe) in 2006. It didn’t get much attention, so Mount began to build up the band’s reputation through live shows. After growing tremendously, their fourth studio album, Love Letters, released on March 10, 2014, ended up being number 7 on the UK Albums Chart and named Zane Lowe‘s ‘Hottest Record in the World’.
