Eclectic indie rock purveyors Metronomy have shared a brand new track, ‘Nice Town’, a collaborative effort with the American hip-hop artist Pan Amsterdam.

The song comes alongside the news that the band have signed to Ninja Tune records, the UK-based independent label founded by the duo behind Coldcut. Metronomy will be adding to the impressive roster of Ninja Tune, which includes the likes of Kae Tempest, Young Fathers, and Thundercat. 

‘Nice Town’ is the first track to be released since the 2021’s Posse EP Volume 1, and sees the group take on a hip-hop and dance influenced sound. Metronomy have never been ones to tie themselves to one specific genre, and they expand their range with this new effort. 

Posse EP Volume 1 was made up entirely of collaborations, with groups like Folly Group, Sorry, and Brian Nasty featuring on the release among various others. ‘Nice Town’ continues in the spirit of Posse EP, seeing the established band work with emerging talent.

On the topic of collaboration, primary songwriter Joe Mount shared, “I send out a folder of ideas, beats mainly, and see what comes back. Some artists will play around with a number of the tracks, and some will focus just on one thing that works for them.”

With seven studio albums under their belt, Metronomy seemingly show no signs of slowing down anytime soon, consistently reaffirming their desire for innovation and finding that new sound.

A limited edition 12” vinyl press of the new track is available for pre-order via Ninja Tune. Watch the official video for ‘Nice Town’ below:
