Metronomy have opened a new chapter of their long and colourful musical life. Naturally, it’s a collaborative and generous one on forthcoming Posse EP Volume 2. Across its five tracks band founder and central figure Joe Mount shifts into the role of producer, creating musical worlds where new singers and artists can add their voice to Mount’s celebratory instrumentals.

This collaborative spirit can be heard on the summery new single “Contact High” featuring fun and energetic hooks from French-American siblings Faux Real and silky smooth Franco-Korean vibrations of Miki. “Whenever I listen to Metronomy I hear my voice and it annoys me” Mount comments, “I can’t detach myself from the song. I hear “Contact High” and I think ‘wow I’m involved with this!’ I can listen to it again and again.”

Elsewhere on Posse EP Volume 2 we see Mount collaborate with Nourished by Time, Lynks, SPIDER, Pan Amsterdam, Master Peace and TaliaBle. Alongside the EP announcement Mount shared “With Balance (feat. Naima Bock and Joshua Idehen)” alongside a striking video – an understated ballad spun with pastel-plucked guitars and hazy, interwoven vocal lines until the mighty Joshua Idehen lands, dispensing deep grounded power and wordplay. In Metronomy’s hands, unique voices can come together, in harmony.
