I guess you can call this band, formed originally in Toronto, a Canadian indie band, but at times they have been working out of Los Angeles, London, New York, and Montreal. Made up of vocalist/keyboardist Emily Haines, bassist Josh Winstead, guitarist James Shaw, and drummer Joules Scott-Key, Metric have found success almost right from the beginning. With multiple Juno Award nominations, their songs being used on “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Gossip Girl” and “Entourage” and 2006 and 2009 Polaris Music Prize nominations, the band has always been firmly on the nation’s music radar.
Despite the fact that all the members have side projects going on (Haines and Shaw have played with Broken Social Scene, Haines has recorded a solo album, Scott-Key and Winstead have a side project called Bang Lime) they have always found time to make music together. Their latest release is their fifth studio album, Synthetica.
