Metric, the right musical measure...


Metric is a Canadian indie pop rock band led by singer-songwriter Emily Haines. Their music is somewhere between the new wave tendency and modern dance rock. Originally formed in Toronto, the band has also, at various times, been based in Montreal, London, New York City and Los Angeles. Along with Haines (who plays the synthesizer and guitar), Metric is completed with guitarist James Shaw (who also plays the theremin), bassist Josh Winstead and drummer Joules Scott-Key.

Despite the fact that they have not been highly publicized (except in recent times thanks to their song Eclipse  (All yours) for the soundtrack of the film Eclipse of the Twilight series), Metric has already a completed musical history :
