Watch: Metronomy’s new video for “Love Letters”, directed by Michel Gondry

on February 11, 2014, 1:32pm

With “Love Letters”, the title track from Metronomy’s forthcoming album, the London-based four-piece seemed intent on putting their own spin on the ‘70s, sounding like a hybrid of ABBA and David Bowie. Now, for the single’s music video, the band has employed Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry to match the song’s infectiously retro-leaning vibe.

Gondry, a veteran at making music videos, has contributed eccentric visuals for artists like Björk, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, and The White Stripes. Continuing his long streak of bizarre playfulness, his clip for “Love Letters” is no exception, and features the band performing in a series of shape-shifting and colorful cardboard sets. Watch it below.

To support the upcoming release of Love Letters, out March 11th via Because Music/Elektra Records, Metronomy will kick off an extensive tour of Europe and North America next month. Dates are below.
