Metric Reveals “Youth Without Youth”!!!!!

If you haven’t heard Metric’s first single of their newest album “Synthetica” (due out in June) you need to STOP what you’re doing and press PLAY! I have to say I was a little worried that I wouldn’t like the new single, only because their last album was so incredible I didn’t think they could top it. After hearing “Youth Without Youth” I feel absolutely reassured that I have nothing to worry about! If you’re a crazy Metric fan like myself, you’ve already heard this and LOVE it! And all you not huge fans of Metric, be ready to be blown away once the album comes out! I can already tell by this song that the album will NOT disappoint! I am SO excited!!!! Give the song a listen and go to ilovemetric.com for more information about “Synthetica” (apparently the band is going to reveal some surprises along the way to the release).

Get to Know: METRIC

 
Today I’ve got Metric on my mind and I just want to talk talk talk about them. Metric is my favorite band, which is actually a very strange thing since I constantly bounce from band to band, genre to genre, but Metric is just it for me. Metric is made up of 4 members. Emily Haines the lead singer (also: my role model), guitarist James Shaw (also has a great singing voice) , bassist Josh Winstead, and the drummer Joules Scott-Key.
They came from Toronto, Canada in 1998 and have been kicking ass musically ever since. The band has release four main albums: Old World Underground, Where are you Now (2003), Live it Out (2005), Grow Up and Blow Away (2007), and Fantasies (2009). I had never even heard of the band until one day last year I was at Target looking on my favorite self in the music section “ARTISTS ON THE VERGE” from which I had bought Omni by Minus the Bear, and The XX’s self-titled album.
