METRIC / Synthetica [2012]

Canadian indie-rockers Metric had an interesting year in 2012, first collaborating with film composer Howard Shore on David Cronenberg's cold psychological drama Cosmopolis and now a literally personal reflective album in Synthetica.
Metric make use of their new wave, haunting synth pop again only now amping it up into loud, flashy songs while still retaining the same sort of emotional catchy sting they've always had.  With Emily Haines' limited vocal range it's somewhat reminiscent of Garbage only not as polished, making for a charming edgy under currant to it.
