While Emily Haines is one of the most singular vocalists in indie thanks to her work with Broken Social Scene, her day job with Metric definitely furrows in a less polychromatic landscape to the point that a voice so sweet became so lost in the muddled mix of Live it Out and its occasionally dour rock arrangements. Her recent solo album Knives Don’t Have Your Back (About 20 in blog years – Watch Dr. Blind) was a substantial and ethereal release so it’ll be interesting to see if Metric can take themselves to the next level. Fantasies is released on 31st of March digitally and the 14th of April on CD.
Pre-orders of the album come with extra shit too.
Incidentially, I bought Broken Social Scene on vinyl yesterday – one of my favourite albums.
