Right now over at Amazon MP3, you can pick up the awesome new album Synthetica by Metric for only $2.99! If you’re a fan of Metric and haven’t picked this up yet, now is your chance!
For those who haven’t heard this band before, Metric is a solid indie rock band that has a lot of electronic influences, but still knows how to rock hard. Synthetica is a stellar record, offering up gems like the tremendous opening “Artificial Nocturne”. The track begins gently, with lead singer Emily Haines’ delivering lines like “I’m just as fucked up as they say/ I can’t fake the daytime/ Found an entrance to escape into the dark” over a bed of ethereal synths, before taking off and launching the album in dramatic fashion. Check out the track here:
Other album highlights include the punk infused stomper “Youth Without Youth”, the smooth and breathy “Breathing Underwater”, the uniquely charming “Dreams So Real”, and the theatrical album closer “Nothing But Time”. This album is one of Metric‘s best, and one of my favorites so far this year.
