The Canadian rockers are back.
As a band that are continuously revolutionizing their sound and pushing boundaries with each new release, it’s no surprise they’ve released a captivating new track.
‘Dressed to Suppress’ is their newest single, following the release of ‘Dark Saturday’, and is the second track unveiled from their forthcoming album due on September 21st – their first album since 2015′s Pagans in Vegas.
Seamlessly infusing drums, vocals and guitars in a truly hypnotic way, their newest releases show Metric drawing influences from their old rock style and new electronic elements. This is Metric unbound – and we are loving it.
“Lyrically, the song explores the maze of conflicts we encounter in our attempts at finding and holding onto love; the absurd mating rituals we routinely perform; and the vast divide between the desires our appearances can imply and the way we actually feel inside,” explains lead singer Emily Haines. “Sonically, it’s one of the most intense songs on the album. We’re already playing it live and it’s getting stronger every night. The contrast between the delicate, dreamy opening and the heavy riffs of the verse and chorus match the dramatic emotional shifts we all go through when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, the push and pull of retaining our own identities in love”.
A music video for “Dressed to Suppress” by award-winning director Justin Broadbent was released along with the song. Check it out below.
