Over the subaquatic drum loop and synth chords that open Love Letters, Metronomy singer Joseph Mount repeats a pleading refrain: “I’ve gotta beam a message to you.” The sentiment might be a simple one—he’s smitten—but the album that follows is anything but. The band’s fourth full-length is filled with emotionally piercing electro-soul that’s rich with off-kilter invention. Mount’s obsession with love inspires him to send letters across the sea ("Love Letters"), plot a whimsical weekend tryst (“Never Wanted”), and ponder astrological compatibility (“I’m Aquarius”). While these gestures might be time-tested fodder for love songs, there’s extraordinary freshness in the execution—from the bouncing, future-disco groove and warm horn lines on “The Most Immaculate Haircut” to the pseudo-Baroque vintage organ riffs of “Monstrous.”
