Metronomy Shares New Video

Metronomy today share the video for their new single “Right on time”, taken from their seventh studio album Small World which was released on Friday via Because Music. Directed by Juliet Casella and Thibaut Caesar, the brains behind the video for previous single “Things will be fine,” the pastel-palette video sees the band enjoying a surreal day of skydiving and picnicking.

Joseph Mount says of the video “Skydiving is by far the most exhilarating and fun thing we have ever done. Yes, we make it look easy! But, filming this video was not without its challenges.

After several weeks of training the aerial choreography we set out to shoot. But thanks to the British summer It looked like we were going to have to abandon the video because of an unusually wet and windy August. Our fortunes changed in early September when the sky cleared and the weather settled. We found two clear days and up we went. We hope you enjoy the video.”

Juliet Casella says “I have always wanted to make a skydiving music video, so I shared the idea with Thibaut and he immediately thought this was a great idea.”

Thibaut Caesar adds “‘Right on time’ is a summer/spring infused song, so we wanted to convey this sunny and free energy, and nothing describes this feeling better than skydiving. In ‘Things will be fine’, the band were in a dollhouse to revisit their teenage selves, and in ‘Right on time’, they are jumping from the plane to explore their freedom. We wanted ‘Right on time’ to represent the ecstasies of freedom, and the psychedelic moment where all the objects are flying is the perfect reflection of it!”

Metronomy are set to head out on a 47-date European tour next month which begins in Porto, Portugal on March 1st before hitting Madrid, Milan, Warsaw, Paris, Liverpool and Bristol and stops off in London on May 7th for a huge Alexandra Palace show.
