I always love when a band manages to stay together and relevant for more than 1.5 albums. I recall seeing Metric for the first time way back in 2003/2004 as I finished my first year living in Los Angeles. Here we are, almost a decade later, and Metric is still doing their thing, putting out albums and holding strong while many way more “important” bands have come and gone. A particular blend of rock and electronic all fused together with lead singer Emily Haines’ voice. Lost Kitten from Synthetica has her particularly girly, playful, vulnerable, and catchy.
And seriously don’t get me started on Emily Haines. So perfect. A future ex Mrs. Malcom if there ever was one.
