Dreamjob - that's Jack Whiteley and Joe Wills - give the now-familiar Groundhog Day structure an existential makeover for Metronomy's return to action with the aptly titled It's Good To Be Back.

Metronomy's frontman Joe Mount encounters his fellow bandmembers through a series of studio-set exteriors of exaggerated fakeness. He ends the sequence with a singing cowboy in front of a sunset backdrop 'shooting' him with his fingers, sending Mount spinning back to the beginning.

As he repeats the sequence of events, things inevitably change, but not quite in the way you might expect. This is no exercise in achieving improvement and ultimate perfection - quite the opposite. Mount and company's swing between indifference, cheeriness, depression and beyond, as they head repeatedly to the cowboy's inevitable finger-gun.

Heroic failure is so more interesting than success...
