Comic strip I did for the band Metronomy!
Preorder their forthcoming album ‘Small World’ (on vinyl) and you’ll get this bundled in with it, it’s a comic expanding on the ‘It’s Good to be Back’ lead single music video, directed by the rather wonderful Dreamjob Directors.
Metronomy don’t really need an introduction, which is high praise from me indeed, but if you’ve not heard of them, rest assured, they are the very finest in grooving electro-pop music. I’m obsessed with loads of their songs. Lots of people are…
You might remember I did a tea towel design for the same good folk a while back.
The album’s out in February and there might be more goodies to tell you about later on, too.
You can pick up the album and get a physical comic (12″ x 12″ size!) from your friendly local indie record shop, like the Drift Record Shop.
The comic expanded upon the premise of each band member playing the role of a funny kind of idealised animal, something that was pretty hard to convey during the passage of the music video, but we could play with it a little bit more here.
…It’s at this point that the story then loops back to the beginning of the comic, just like the video does. So you turn over the ‘back cover’ of the comic and then you’re back at start of page one again.
The music video loops, I said… Wanna see? Check it out:
And if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a ‘making-of-the-video’ video that’s an eye-opener:
Many thanks to everyone at Metronomy’s record label, the esteemed Because Music.
