Metric has been one of my most beloved bands since middle school. Yep, li'l 12-year-old Brie was obsessed with Metric for their electro-rock blend that had the same infectiousness as a radio hit. From their "Succexy" dance roots, to infusing more guitar, to epic anthems on Fantasies, the Canadian foursome is releasing a new album called Synthetica on June 12. Emily Haines & Co. bring back their sometimes sweet, usually danceable, and always ass-kicking style with tracks like "Speed the Collapse," "Breathing Underwater," and "Lost Kitten." But don't just take my word for it: stream the whole thing right here.
