Metric with Joywave at The Mercury Ballroom
Metric's electric, adventurous outlook, and whose music encompasses elements of synth pop, dance-rock, and electronica. Opening for Imagine Dragons this summer, Metric is back to bring you an electrifying performance at Mercury Ballroom on Sunday, March 6.
Metric is originally from Toronto, but has traveled enough to call places like New York, Montreal, and London home, too. This self-proclaimed “emotionally primitive” group is still learning new things about themselves. “It feels like we’re growing, thank God, because otherwise we’d have to quit,” front woman Emily Haines laughs.
Metric is fifteen years into their career, but are continually striving to make new sounds.Their latest album, Pagans in Vegas, has a “million synthesizers, walls of modular stuff, [and] crazy instruments,” as described by band member Jimmy Shaw. This has been by “Shade,” “Cascades,” and “Fortunes,” just to name a few singles from the record.
Following a soul-searching hiatus lead singer Emily Haines took in 2014, the music that is coming in 2016 has been forecasted to be pure and natural,” reverting back to the naked and melancholic styles of her 2006 solo album, Knives Don’t Have Your Back.
For Metric, 2015 is about what feels natural, unrestricted, and — most importantly — enjoyable. “I feel like we just kind of pushed through on this and found out how to still make really creative and fun f–king music,” says Haines. Hang out right on the stage in Mercury's intimate setting and rock out with the premium sound that will enhance the Metric’s already captivating show. Come and experience the magic first-hand on Sunday, March 6.
