METRONOMY with Class Actress on Pier 40 - Thursday, July 28th
With the spring release of its third album The English Riviera, the constantly developing British electronic band Metronomy has continued its streak of producing some of the most original and exciting music in the current pop milieu, an utterly unique proposition. Led by James Mount, Metronomy’s music is described as “pure experimental pop” a “mixture of unabashed funk and sunset tunes.”
The Brooklyn-based electro pop trio Class Actress indulges in elancholic, synth-heavy jams about romance and desire that recall some of singer-songwriter Elizabeth Harper’s favorite groups, circa 1986: Soft Cell, Pet Shop Boys, and Yaz. Dubbed “Brooklyn’s very own Madonna,” by critics, Harper’s music also draws from the icon’s early career.
