DL: Fantasies
Buy It: Amazon

Metric is a four-piece indie rock band originally from New York but are now based in Toronto, Canada. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform live at the El Rey a few years back and it was one of the most fun and memorable concert experiences I ever had. Singer Emily Haines is a delight to watch perform in person as her energy and zeal just completely expands from the stage to envelope and captivate the entire audience until they're hanging on her every move. With previous albums "Grow Up and Blow It Away," "Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?" and "Live It Out," the band created dynamic music with chugging basslines, catchy synths, crunchy guitars, and danceable rhythms topped with interesting lyrical content. "Fantasies" is their fourth album and latest effort which continues that trend while seeing the band hone their craft even further.

"Gimme Sympathy" is the first single:

And here are their excellent aforementioned previous efforts:
