The sound of a theatre full of enthused Parisians is no mean feat, and Metronomy certainly seem to have instilled a sense of ‘Rule Britannia’ in this sweat-sodden throng as they heartedly cry out in a full crowd sing-along.
What is it they say about punk bands in glass houses?
There are no wanky digressions or lead fretwork clogging up the song with rock star dirge, just a well executed use of noise vs silence, skill vs sparse.
Songs are played to a completely silent crowd. Songs end and are met with rapturous applause, there is no chatter level to fight against. Brisbane crowds take note.
