“Small World might just have the biggest heart of any Metronomy record yet” – Rolling Stone UK
“The British indie-synth-pop troupe are at their jolliest here, clopping into your happy place on a jaunty Chicago house bassline”– The Guardian

“Small World” sees Metronomy return to simple pleasures and embrace more pared-down, songwriterly sonics, while asking broader existential questions: which feels at least somewhat rooted in the period of time during which it was made – 2020. Finding appreciation in nature and our roots, while reappraising the things we value as we get older, are all things that are part and parcel of the human experience: though it has all felt accelerated and emphasised over the past two years or so. Through the tumultuous ebb and flow of the years, Metronomy continues to endure, and Joe Mount’s ability as a songwriter, arranger and producer shines through on “Small World”, evergreen.
