Sharon Horgan plays an alienated 70’s housewife for Metronomy’s promo for ‘Old Skool’, directed by Dawn Shadforth.

Shadforth brings the 1970s to life in all its big-haired, prawn-cocktailed glory in her beautifully shot video for the band’s first release from their new album ‘Summer 08’. With shag carpets, big lapels and bell bottoms, the 70s aesthetic is wholly apt for this disco-leaning throwback of a jam.

“Old Skool is a brilliant track and inspired me on many levels,” says Shadforth of the video. “The strange suburban world and themes of anxiety, alienation and release chimed, from my point of view, with the lyrics which have a dark and fragmented quality.”
