Joseph Mount is making his directorial debut on the video for new Metronomy track Lately.

“This music video is a pop promo in the grand tradition of pop promos: end of school on a Friday afternoon, Mysterious little people that live in a cassette tape, concerned parents and special FX,” he says. “The song and video are both about growing up.”

“I’ve absolutely loved taking the opportunity to direct our own music videos. I have quite strong opinions on what music videos are for in 2019 and how they should be presented and this has been a chance for me to put my money where my mouth is!”

The most impressive thing I’ve realised is how much of a group effort creating a music video is. I’ve always known it, but this time I’ve obviously worked much closer with the various characters, involved in every department. So, thank you to them.”

The song arrives as Metronomy get into the swing of their festival season, which is at We Love Green in Paris on June 1st.
