Following on from the success of their 2019 full-length 'Metronomy Forever', band member and multi-instrumentalist Oscar Cash has now announced his plans to release a reimagined work of their latest LP.
The new album 'Oscar Cash Forever' will include eight new tracks inspired by his work on the band's latest release, and is set to be released this Friday 10th April via Because Music.
Speaking about the new project, Oscar said, “In late 2018 me and my wife moved to San Francisco, there in our apartment, I set up a small music studio. Metronomy weren’t touring at that time and other than exploring the city, all I was doing was making beats.
"Across the Atlantic, as ‘Metronomy Forever’ began to take shape, Joe sent me a few rough tracks. To my surprise a lot of the new Metronomy keyboard lines and melodies found their way into some of the music I was making! It happened quite naturally. I sent some of the resulting tracks to Joe with the idea that they could be used as mysterious teasers in the lead up to the official release of ‘Metronomy Forever’. But Joe was very into them and challenged me to make more. He suggested I make something to accompany the album proper.
"With an electric piano and midi saxophone I went about trying to expand all my ideas eventually turning them into tracks in their own right. Oscar Cash Forever began to take shape. ‘Oscar Cash Forever’ reminds me of the music I made in my early twenties; the same sounds that echoed from mine and Joe’s shared flat in 2003. Hopefully all the little borrowed phrases reveal themselves in new ways along the way. This jazzy and atmospheric exploration is meant to be listened to as a mixtape. It’s a companion piece to the original masterpiece; ‘Metronomy Forever’. Enjoy.”
