Photo Gallery: Metric - Enmore Theatre (12.12.13)

Some of our favourite Canadians form the band known as Metric, and last night they played an explosive set at Sydney's Enmore Theatre. Mikki Gomez brings us these photos of Emily and the gang from the pit.

Album News Weekly: 5th December 2013

the AU interview: Jimmy Shaw from Metric (Toronto, Canada)

Larry catches up with Metric guitarist Jimmy Shaw to find out what we can expect from the Australian tour - which kicks off in a little over a week - given it's been well over a year since Synthetica was released. Hint: Some old stuff! We talk about their first ever trip to Hong Kong for Clockenflap Festival this weekend, about his cover of John Lennon's "Mother", new material in 2014 and much more!

New Music Video: Metric - "Synthetica" (2013)

"Synthetica" is the title track from Metric's most recent album, and they've just released a brand new video for it. They'll be returning to Australia in December for four theatre performances in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

Best of 2012 Countdown: Top 40 Songs - Part 1: 40-31

As we all start making our decisions for the tracks that will make up our votes for the Hottest 100, we had our contributors tell us their favourite tracks of 2012. Each contributor gave us their top 10 and the resulting 40 tracks are the highest rated from those lists! As usual, it's a fairly eclectic list - read on and enjoy! For the most part we'll be letting the music speak for itself...

ACL Live Review: Metric + Polica - Emo's East, Austin, Texas (13.10.12)

For their official ACL afterparty, Metric (pictured above) were supported by the fabulous Polica, who will soon be heading to Australia for Laneway. Admittedly, their music is nothing mind blowing but their international support is unsurprising; they are a tight act with a stand out lead singer. I have to take a bit more time to get to know them, that's for sure...

Album Review: Metric - Synthetica (2012 LP)

Metric - Synthetica

Metric have always balanced the rock and synth-based pop sound impeccably, and no album showcases this better than their 2009 breakthrough Fantasies. And now that the band is enjoying more exposure and success (in part thanks to appearances on soundtracks like Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Twilight: Eclipse) the anticipation for their follow-up was understandably high.
