Metric – Help I’m Alive (80 Kidz Remix)
Formed in Toronto but, at various times, based in Montreal, London, New York and L.A., Metric boasts the sort of history that requires one of those connect-the-dots redlined maps you see in an Indiana Jones movie — and the story of their latest release Fantasies is no different. First stop: Bear Creek, located outside Seattle, Washington.
“The four us went out into the woods as a band with no expectations and did whatever we wanted,” vocalist Emily Haines recalls. “We were coming from London so it was a serious contrast – it felt like we had left civilization and all that mattered was music again. We wrote a lot of songs there including ‘Gimme Sympathy,’ ‘Collect Call’…and ‘Black Sheep,’ which isn’t on the album ’cause it has a life of its own. When I listen to the finished record, I feel like all its warmth comes from that place in the woods.”
