Metronomy: A Nice Walk With A Pop Star
John Lewis, Do Not Disturb, Spring 2012
JOSEPH MOUNT IS discussing the title of his latest album, The English Riviera. "People abroad are a bit puzzled by England having a Riviera," he laughs. "They assume it's a joke. Which, in a way, it is. Torbay doesn't have its own microclimate or have quite the glamour of Cannes or Nice. But it's the closest we've got. It's also very English to take something a bit shabby and make the best of it."
