Metric – Youth Without Youth

Metric is a Canadian band founded in 1998 in Toronto. Metric consists of vocalist Emily Haines (who also plays the synthesizer and guitar), guitarist James Shaw (who also plays the synthesizer and theremin), bassist Joshua Winstead and drummer Joules Scott-Key.  Haines and Shaw also perform with Broken Social Scene.

I have never really been a fan of Metric (or Broken Social Scene for that matter).  Their earlier music never really grabbed my attention even the hit off their last album Fantasies called Gimme Sympathy did not do much for me.  They released a new album called Synthetica on June 12, 2012 and first release off the album called Youth Without Youth caught my attention and is the song of the week.
