Joe Mount hasn't always been the songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist auteur Metronomy fans know and revere him as today. Eight summers ago, he was â in his own words â â25, constantly drunk, single and living in London desperately trying to be cool.â Then a fledging bedroom producer, his second album, Nights Out, was a few months away from release, and life was a restless whirlwind of boozy cab rides from gig to gig, grimy London dive to grimy London dive. âI can't remember a single night in, sat in a nice room, just watching the telly,â he reminisces now. âIt was quite manic, remembering it.â Instead of burying that wild-eyed time in his memories, Mount's about to return to it. Summer '08 is his sequel to Nights Out. And it's album he's waited eight years to make.
