When U.K. band Metronomy visited the Twin Cities for a show at the Varsity Theater, band members Joe Mount and Oscar Cash stopped at The Current to host a Theft of the Dial, playing some of their favorite songs and telling their story.

Metronomy were conceived by Joe Mount in the late 1990s; they released their first album in 2005 and started performing live the following year. "You sort of have to commit to the idea of becoming a musician or being in a band quite young," Mount says. "In England, everyone has a gap year after you do your A-Levels when you're 17 or 18. Lots of people go traveling and have a gap year, and I was like, 'I'm not going to do that; I'm going to get a job and work on my music because I'll be traveling for the rest of my life.' I knew it was a sort of thought exercise, almost. I hoped I would [become a musician]."

Metronomy: Forever is their sixth album. We'll hear songs from that release alongside some of their favorite music from other artists.
