Now Watching: Metronomy – 'Salted Caramel Ice Cream'

Friday, July 5, 2019

British band Metronomy are currently prepping for the release of their highly anticipated sixth album Metronomy Forever, but until it's time to enjoy their new full-length offering, they've served up the video for their most recent single 'Salted Caramel Ice Cream'. Spanning 17 tracks, the album has been scheduled for release on September 13th.

'Salted Caramel Ice Cream' channels both the exhilaration of love, as well as the panic and anxiety that can also come with the powerful feeling of being in love. Joseph Mount, who made his directorial debut with 'Lately', also directed the video for  'Salted Caramel Ice Cream'.

On the video, Mount said, "Years ago a friend of mine gave me a VHS tape of the MTV show ‘120 Minutes’. It’s something I’d get him to do every so often as I was a bit obsessed with music TV at the time. On one particular tape was the video for ‘Sonne’ by Rammstein, I’d never seen them before and it blew my mind. This video is a sort of homage to that, but with an added story about the gentrification of ice cream parlours."
