The Upsetter is Metronomy‘s from this year’s album Love Letters. The video was directed by Daren Rabinovitch of Californian Encyclopedia Pictura (Björk, Grizzly Bear) and produced by Rona Vergne. It features a primitive woman who creates by her own a leaf friend.
Frontman Joe Mount said:
“Me and Oscar (Cash) went camping in Easte Prawle, Devon. One night we came back to our tents late after an evening at the local pub. The walk was very beautiful under the stars, we spent the whole time bumping into the sides of the road because we were craning our necks. Once back at the camp we caught our second wind with a bottle of whiskey and lit a fire. Uncharacteristically I found myself wishing we had brought an acoustic guitar along with us, Oscar has an impressive Beatles repertoire. I also desperately wanted to send some text messages, but we had no reception. The Upsetter is the campfire singalong we never had, it is played and sung entirely live.”
